For the episode of Lost, see Maternity Leave (Lost). Parental leave is an employee benefit that provides paid or unpaid time off work to care for a child or make arrangements for the child's welfare. Often, the term parental leave includes maternity, paternity, and adoption leave. Often the minimum benefits are stipulated by law.

Variation in international law

In most countries, paid parental leave (typically maternity leave) is available for those who have worked for their current employer for a certain period of time. National legislations vary widely as it is a matter of politics to decide the appropriate type of parental leave legislation. The United States is the only Western country that does not mandate paid parental leave, although the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 mandates unpaid parental leave for the majority of American workers. Legal requirements for parental leave benefits do not always reflect actual practice. In some countries with relatively weak requirements, individual employers choose to provide benefits beyond those required by law. In some countries, laws requiring parental leave benefits are widely ignored in practice.

Benefits in a selection of countries

A large majority of countries provide more than 10 paid weeks maternity leave. Only four provide none. Histogram of Paid Leave by country. When entries are not listed in the subsection tables, it may be because they are unknown and not that they do not exist.

Europe

Central European countries are the most dedicated countries in the world regarding parental leave. In the Czech Republic, it is standard that mothers stay at home for 3 years with every child. All mothers can decide to take 2, 3 or 4 years of maternity leave. It is also possible for the fathers to take the leave instead of the mothers but it is not common. For the whole period mothers are supported by the state. A similar model is also used in Austria where mothers can choose between 1 and 3 years. Also, in Slovakia the standard duration of parental leave is 3 years; for a handicapped child it is up to 6 years. The state pays support of 256 Euros per month for the child's first 2 years. After this period it is 164.22 Euros per month. mehr
