Denmark
The European Parliament and the member states of the European Union have agreed that in future, two months of the total parental leave will be earmarked for the father of the child. If the father does not exercise his right to paternity leave, it will not be possible to transfer the related financial support for the earmarked paternity leave to the mother.

This leave agreement thus reduces the maximum period for which the mother is entitled to receive financial support during her maternity leave.

The agreement is expected to enter into force in Denmark within three years.
