Poll: How many paternity leave days does your company offer?

Hi community,

I am wondering how many paternity days each of your companies within Switzerland give.

We know that woman by law have 14 to 16 weeks of maternity leave. But men only have 1 to 2 days by law (although some parties are trying to get this law modified).

Some companies decide to give as a benefit more paternity leave days, for example a couple of weeks.

On this link, you will find a quick Google Form where you can participate with your anonymous feedback so we can gather more information about the situation in different companies within Switzerland.

In some days, I will logically share the results of the poll on this thread.

Thanks for participating!

Surferride

Re: Poll: How many paternity leave days your company offers?

Under which law does a man have the right to a day off work? I know of no law, maybe a company is generous, but legally I don't know of any free time.

Anonymous, except for the mandatory company name.

What's the purpose of this survey? Who is it for?

Thanks! Great Links!

@Mirfield, it's for myself, I am just curious. Telling on which company you have that benefit still doesn't allow anybody to identify you. So yes, it's anonymous

It does if you're the only English speaker in a small company.
