Extended Paternity Leave

Another good EU rule is coming.  No later than 1 August 2022, Czechland needs to extend paternity leave from seven to ten working days.

In 2016, the Czech government introduced seven days of paternity leave allowing fathers to claim up to 70% of their salary.  The seven days became effective February 2018.

The government also passed an amendment to the parental leave law that by 2020 will increase benefits from 220.000 to 300.000 Kč (~$9224 - $12,579; ~€8252 - €11.253).

Update:  In 2021, Czechland extended paternity leave to two weeks effective 1.1.2022.
