Can workers take leave specifically for family needs?


This map tells us whether workers have access to leave to address family needs.

More information:

  • Family leave is a kind of leave provided by countries that can be taken for a variety of family or household needs; these needs are specified to a greater or lesser extent depending on the country.
  • When leave to meet family needs is made available only to women, it was not included. Our map only shows leave available to both men and women to ensure gender equity.
