Sweden -Fathers to get third month of mandatory paternity leave -June 03, 2015

The reform now raises this paid paternity leave to three months.

A reform in family policy is adding a third month to fathers’ paid paternity leave. In the current system, new parents get 16 months of paid parental leave, two of which must be taken off by the father. The reform now raises this to three months that are either taken off by the father or deducted from the months of paid leave.
