Luxembourg - Parental leave law approved - October 31, 2016

The parliament has approved the new law on parental leave, which enters into force on December 1, 2016. The Act provides for more flexibility, enabling a parent to take four or six months' full-time leave; eight or twelve months’ part-time leave; one day of parental leave per week for 20 months and four individuals months of parental leave within 20 months. In all cases, the flexible models require the prior consent of the employer. The part-time and single-time models can therefore be rejected by an employer.
