Summary. It was a promise of Emmanuel Macron. Since November 2020, paternity leave has been extended, and it is now twenty-five days, seven of which are mandatory. Despite the fine of 7500 euros that risk companies that do not allow their employees to benefit from it, some employees deplore precisely a corporate culture that prevents them from taking full advantage of this right.
Introduced in 1946, paternity leave has evolved since the early 2000s. The government's ambition is then to create a real leave for fathers, in order to promote the creation of a bond with the child, but also the investment of fathers and thus contribute to equality within the couple.
Today, while 70% of employees take paternity leave according to the latest studies, inequalities persist at both extremes of salaries, and especially among managers.
For Code source, Bérangère Lepetit, journalist in the society department, and Ariane Riou, journalist in the stories department of Le Parisien, take stock.
