Parental leave is granted to parents, usually after maternity and paternity leave, allowing mothers and fathers to take care of their young children without losing their jobs. Such a policy exists in all EU Member States and in Ireland it is called Saoire do thuismitheoirí. The policy design and eligibility rules vary across the EU and not all women and men in the EU are eligible for parental leave.
