Extension new birth leave law WIEG

New birth leave law available in ManusPlus

The current applicable birth leave, also known as maternity or paternity leave, for partners is once the number of working hours per week. As op July 1st, 2020, an additional birth leave (partner leave) has been added.

From this date, partners can take additional birth leave for a maximum of five weeks, five times the number of working hours per week, according to the "Wet Invoering Extra Geboorteverlof" (WIEG).

Conditions for this extension WIEG are:

  • the traditional 1 week birth leave has to be taken first;
  • the additional birth leave has to be taken within 6 months of birth.

Obviously Manus Software Europe can have this law set up in ManusPlus so that it's correctly automated and registered.
