19th International Review on Leave Policies and Related Research 2023

18 Sep 2023

This leave is for parents following the end of Parental leave and may not in practice be very different to Parental leave (although the conditions attached to the two types of leave may vary, see for example Finland or Norway). [...] In Argentina, Greece and Uruguay, the period of post-natal Maternity leave differs for the public and private sectors; while in Canada, the province of Québec has a substantially different system to the rest of the country. [...] 33 Luxembourg: there is no statutory Paternity leave, although fathers can use ten days’ well-paid leave due to ’extraordinary circumstances.’ 34 Netherlands: The length of leave is equivalent to six times the number of working hours per week per partner/father; for example, a full-time job of 38 hours per week gives a leave entitlement of 6 weeks, the length of leave shown in the table. [...] 47 Croatia: in the case of twins, other multiple births, or for the third and every subsequent child, parents are entitled to leave until the child(ren) is 36 months old at 100 per cent of earnings; the ceiling for the period from 12 to 36 months is lower than for the first six months of Parental leave. [...] 74 Total amount of ‘well-paid’ leave available to parents in first 18 months of a child’s life: April 2023 The aim of this table is to capture the extent to which parenting-related leave is compensated in a way that is related to wages or not, and to highlight the gender gap in this type of leave.
