New model for maternity leave


The trade unions (FH) and the employer’s association (DA) have agreed on a new model for maternity leave. Under the new model, the mother and the father each have 11 weeks of leave (barsel), with 26 weeks that can be shared between the parents. Under the current model, the mother has 14 weeks, while the father has 2 weeks, with 32 weeks which can be shared between the parents. The new model still has to be debated in Parliament and approved.
