REPORTS TODAY HAVE suggested that the government is planning the introduction of a full year’s paid parental leave – that can be split between fathers and mothers.

We’d like to know if you think it is a good idea.

As it stands right now, mothers are entitled to 26 weeks’ maternity leave, with the option of an extra 16 weeks’ unpaid leave. There are also more immediate plans to grant fathers two weeks’ paternity leave.

Should mothers and fathers be allowed share parental leave?


Poll Results:

Yes (9366)
No (831)
I don't know (258)
