The law entitles you to 3 days of paid paternity leave. Some companies are more generous, but that's up to them!

so far i know and according to this http://www.news.admin.ch/message/?lang=de&msg-id=35872 law says nothing (Oct. 2010).

"Seit dem 1. Juli 2005 erhalten erwerbstätige Frauen in der Schweiz während 14 Wochen eine Mutterschaftsentschädigung, die 80 Prozent des Erwerbseinkommens deckt. Ein Vaterschaftsurlaub ist in keinem Bundesgesetz geregelt."

Short translation: mother receives 80% of the salary for 14 weeks. The paternity leave is not regulated.

Luckily i was given one week paid by the employer.
