Parental leave1 Replies
Hi there, I'm a new dad and would like to spend time with my little sprog - anyone know if I qualify for Elternzeit over here? I have worked here for 8 months, am a UK citizen. Is there a minimum time you have to work in Germany for before you qualify - I did work in the UK and can prove I paid my taxes and contributions etc. - don't know if theres an EU agreement between countries regarding this? The company I work for is quite small (less than 20 employees - does my employer have to let me have time off or can he object because of this? When do you have to apply for parental leave and how do I know how long I am entitled to ? Any advice mucho appreciated!
