From 2 weeks to 2 days: the proposal for an extension of mandatory paternity leave narrows in the Italian Stability Law for 2016

In Italy, an amendment to the draft of the 2016 Stability Law presented by the vice-presidents of the two Parliament Chambers (Valeria Fedeli and Titti Di Salvo) originally aimed at introducing a 15-day mandatory paternity paid leave to be used by fathers within a month after the birth of their child. The proposal was rejected: art. 1, co. 2015, Law 208/2015 provides an extension of mandatory paternity leave from one day to (only) two days.
