Earmarked Paternity Leave

Group 7 Created with Sketch.

The trade union movement’s main organization (FH ˗ Danish Trade Union Confederation) and the Danish Employers’ Association (DA) have agreed on a new parental leave model. The agreement is a result of the EU Leave Directive implemented by the European Parliament in April 2019, the overall purpose of which is to help bridge the gender gap by earmarking part of the parental leave and thus reducing the flexibility of the parents to divide the parental leave among themselves.

The EU Leave Directive imposes EU member states to implement national rules of minimum 2 months of earmarked non-transferable parental leave to each parent. The current parental leave rules in Denmark guarantee only 2 weeks of earmarked leave for the father.

The EU Leave Directive must be implemented by 1 August 2022 in Denmark.
