Parental Leave Act

New Parental Leave Act in Denmark

Get an in-depth review of the new rules on parental leave

On 3 March 2022, the Danish Parliament adopted amendments to the Parental Leave Act with the aim of strengthening gender equality and promoting an equal division of leave. Many of the new rules will enter into force in August, so it is important to get to grips with the changes now.

The course will review the following areas:

  • Parental Leave Act – The right to absence and maternity/paternity benefit
  • ‘Earmarked’ parental leave – Transfer of leave between parents – How?
  • Other flexible arrangements for leave – What options does the act offer?
  • Notification of leave – When should notification be given by the mother, co-mother and father?
  • Single parents and queer families – What rights will they have and when will they get them?
  • Your existing parental leave arrangements – How will these be affected and what can and should you do?
