Paternity Leave

QUESTION

Hi all,

I understand that 1 week paternity leave is only granted if the child is a Singapore Citizen. Can company also grant this leave to PR or foreigner?

Thanks!

Sandy

Our practise is for children of Singapore Citizenship. It does not apply to PR or foreigners.

I think it’s mainly up to the company’s decision to grant to PR or foreigner. But won’t be able to claim under government paid.

Yes, if your child is a Singapore citizen and you are or had been lawfully married to the child's mother between conception and birth.
