The Cabinet on Tuesday approved a draft bill that would allow 15 days of paid paternity leave for employees at state-owned enterprises whose wives have given birth.
The bill was proposed by the State Enterprise Labour Relations Committee to allow males working at state enterprises to take paid leave to care for their wives and new babies, deputy government spokeswoman Sunisa Lertpakawat said.
Under the new law, an employee can take up to 15 days at full salary within 30 days after the child's birth.
