Spanish Fathers Entitled To Breastfeeding Leave 1

Posted by samzenpus
from the what's-for-lunch? dept.
The European Union Court of Justice has ruled that a biological inability to breastfeed is no reason not to allow father's the same time-off rights as mothers. The ruling will allow fathers to take up to an hour leave from work or leave a half hour early each day for the first nine months following the birth of a child. From the article: "Not giving dads the same right as mums in this case 'is liable to ... keep men in a role subsidiary to that of women in relation to the exercise of their parental duties,' the court ruled. Breastfeeding leave should now be considered as 'time purely devoted to the child' in order to reconcile family life and work after maternity leave."
