Croatia introduces paternity leave

The government of Croatia recently passed new legislation transposing the European Union Directive 2019/1158 of 20 June 2019 on work-life balance for parents and carers. The new legislation amends parental leave requirements and introduces paid paternity leave, carer’s leave and flexible working arrangements.

The new legislation, amending the Maternity and Parental Support Act, entered into effect on 1 August 2022.
