The Family Law proposes a five-day paid leave to care for cohabitants

The draft of the Family Law provides for the inclusion of paid leave for the care of a relative –up to the second degree or cohabiting– for all workers. This norm, they point out from the Ministry of Social Rights, “extends the permits for care and benefits for families and extends to single-parent families with two children the protection that until now was reserved for numerous families.”

The department directed by Ione Belarra is working on the text, which also contemplates the “extension of the parenting income of 100 euros per month for each dependent child under three years of age.” The Minister of Finance, María Jesús Montero, has already explained that this measure is expected to enter into force in “January 2023”.

In addition, the norm, which Belarra hopes to present this Tuesday in the Council of Ministers, will also include an “eight-week parental leave, which can be enjoyed continuously or intermittently, until the minor turns eight years old,” sources from his Ministry point out. .

“COVID has taught us how important it is to take care of ourselves and have time to care for others, and these are lessons that are here to stay. For this reason, we think that Spain has to be approved with other countries of the European Union and establish a care permit. A permit that allows you to stay at home taking care of your children when they have had a bad night vomiting, that you can ask for the day to take your parents to the doctor or that you can be with your partner when they are sick, ”Belarra pointed out in February in a act on this same law.

Another of the measures that this Ministry has been working on will include in the concept of large family “single-parent families with two children”, nuclear families “with two children where an ascendant or descendant has a disability” and “families with two children headed by a victim of gender violence or by a spouse who has obtained exclusive custody and custody without the right to alimony”, add sources from Social Rights.
