Increase in paternity leave.

February 5, 2010

Fathers in the UK will soon be entitled to take 3 paid and 3 unpaid months of leave to allow women to return to work earlier after having a baby.

I was born at 7 in the morning, and my dad was still expected to be in work at 9 that day. He did, however, become my full-time carer 6 weeks later when my mum went back to work. I think one of the main reasons they made that decision was that my mum was the one earning more.
