Fathers to get longer paternity leave and shared parental leave from 2017
[SINGAPORE ] Fathers are set to get more time off from work to look after their newborns, under a slew of new measures announced on Wednesday to support young parents.
Those whose babies are born from Jan 1, 2017, will get two weeks of paid paternity leave. Currently, only one week of paternity leave is compulsory, while companies offer a second week on a voluntary basis.
