Maternity, paternity and parental leave leave is granted for the period during which the corresponding benefit, governed by the amended Health Insurance Act (1963), is considered to be linked. For example, maternity leave usually begins 30 days a week before the calculated delivery date and lasts 105 days per week. Paternity leave is granted for 6 to 12 days per week in connection with childbirth and for an additional 6 days at a later date.

In both cases, termination is subject to the general condition set out in Chapter 7, Section 1, paragraph 1, that the reason must be objective and serious. The content of this condition may vary from case to case, but in all cases, the reason for dismissal should not be discriminatory if it is inconsistent with the employer`s duty of loyalty.
