The five-week paternity leave will not take effect tomorrow as planned

The extension of the paternity leave from four to five weeks It seems the never ending story. It was supposed to take effect tomorrow Tuesday July 3, the day after the General Budgets were published in the Official State Gazette (BOE), but it will not be so.

Recall that the measures included in the PGE law become effective as of the day following its publication in BOE. Although they were finally approved Thursday in Congress and were expected to be published today, the Government has decided to delay until Wednesday its publication, so predictably if nothing fails, if the deadlines are met the entry into force would be on Thursday July 5. We will keep you informed.

Those who are about to be parents these days will be restless with the entry into force of the measure, because your baby is born earlier or delayed can make a difference so you can enjoy more days with him.

As this mother comments on Twitter that is about to give birth and still does not see the budgets in the BOE:

Squeezing the legs to not give birth without seeing the budgets in the BOE? Can you tell when they are ??? PLEASE

Hopefully, finally, the enlargement will be effective this week, a measure that we have been waiting for since January of 2018 when supposedly it should have been made effective and we already have more than six months late.
