The government announces the Family Law


Seven days a year paid for caring for children, parents or cohabitants.

It will allow "staying at home caring for children when they have had a bad night vomiting or having a fever."

The Minister of Social Rights and Agenda 2030, has proposed to include in the Family Law a leave of absence of at least seven days a year one hundred percent paid, both to care for children and parents or other cohabitants. It will include a paid leave of absence of up to nine days (in the event of a trip to another Autonomous Community) and 7 (if in residence).

At the moment, Spanish legislation provides for two days, far from the one proposed by the European Union, which recommends such a permit of five days a year in Directive 2019/1158.
