Paternity leave – what does it mean in practice? Amendment of the Loss of Earnings Compensation Act (LEC)
In the referendum held on 27 September 2020, the proposal for paid paternity leave was adopted with 60.3 percent of votes in favour. This will allow fathers to take two weeks' paid leave within six months of the birth of their child. As with maternity compensation, this leave will be funded through the Loss of Earnings Compensation Act (LEC). At its meeting on 21 October 2020, the Federal Council set 1 January 2021 as the date the amendment to the law will come into force.
