Maternity & Paternity Leave

Maternity and paternity leave are types of job-protected leave that allow parents to take time off work after the birth or adoption of a child. Maternity leave is typically granted to biological mothers, while paternity leave is granted to biological fathers or, in some cases, to non-biological parents who are taking on primary care responsibilities for the child. The duration and terms of maternity and paternity leave can vary widely depending on the employer and local regulations. Providing maternity and paternity leave can help to support employee well-being and work-life balance, while also promoting gender equality and strengthening family bonds.
