South Korean Government Planning to Increase Benefits to Allow Working Fathers to take Paternity Leave
The government of South Korea is planning to increase cash benefits and rewrite labor regulations to enable more working fathers to afford to take paternity leave. The new family-policies will become effective in 2008 and will require companies to allow male employees an unpaid, three-day paternity leave when their spouses give birth, which would not count as regular vacation or paid paternity leave that they are already entitled to.
