Can working parents take leave specifically for children’s health needs?


This map tells us whether mothers and fathers have access to leave specifically designated for children’s health needs.

More information:

  • Leave for children’s health needs also includes cases where leave is available only for serious illnesses, hospitalization, or urgent health needs.
  • When leave to meet a child’s health 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.
