Employment Contracts Act, Estonia (Parental Leave)

Employment Contracts Act, Sec 62 (Parental Leave)

Paid parental leave immediately follows maternity leave, and can be taken until the child reaches three. The father only has the right to parental leave once the child reaches the age of 70 days.

Parents get 435 days off to share, with compensation calculated at the average of their previous earnings over the same period. While the time is shared, only one parent can take at any one time. The leave is paid by the state (Social Security Board).
