Fathers Paternity Leave

September 9, 2015 | biocare

From September 2016, Fathers in Ireland will have the opportunity of applying for two weeks paid paternity leave following the birth of their child.

The new scheme will entitle fathers to a paternity leave payment of €230.00 per week. The introduction of paid paternity leave for fathers is regarded by most observers as a welcome development as it will promote gender equality in the workplace.
