Does your employer grant you Maternity Leave and Paternity Leave?
November 24, 2017 4:40am CST
There are many facilities provided by the employers/ companies to its employees. In Central Government officers, here in India there is a provision of Maternity Leave for female employees. An employee could avail 180 days maternity leave, with less than two surviving children. A married male employee is allowed to avail 15 days Paternity Leave, within six months of birth of his child. Many private organisations also allow maternity leave for 90 days to its female employees, here in India. Do you have provision of maternity leave and paternity leave in your organisation?

There is a minimal paternity and maternity leave fixed by law for all employees in my country that cannot be refused by the employer. It is a minimum, some companies are offering more. For the mother it is counted in weeks, 6 weeks before the birth and 10 weeks after+11 working days during 1 year after the birth. For the father there is a 3 days birth leave when the birth occurs and a 11 days paternity leave in the year following the birth. Only working days are counted so it can be a 18 days leave for the father following the birth. We have also a parental leave permitting a parent to ask for a part time work or for a leave with no wages for up to 3 years after a birth.

It sounds interesting that in France all employers must grant maternity leave for approximately 6+10 weeks i.e. 16 weeks to its female employees. The father also gets paternity leave for 11+3 days. We do not have any leave for part time work, however, a mother could take leave for one year (from her own accumulated leave) for one year after her maternity leave of 180 days gets over for looking after her child.

If someone in your family is employed in Government Sector, then you would be aware that Government employees are granted paternity leave and maternity leave, as the case may be. PS - Is your Husband a State Government employee or a Central Government employee?
