Increases in Paternity Leave Days

On December 12, 2023, the Chamber of Deputies approved, with 409 votes in favor, 1 against, and 2 abstentions, both in general and in particular, the draft decree amending various provisions of the Federal Labor Law and the Federal Law for State Workers, as regulated by Section B) of Article 123 of the Constitution, regarding paternity leave.

The resolution, which still needs approval from the Senate and publication by the Federal Executive Power, is expected to be completed within this same year, so that the reform comes into effect on January 1, 2024.

The resolution stipulates that paid paternity leave will increase from 5 to 20 working days, both in the case of the birth of a child and in the case of adoption. Furthermore, in the event of complications in the health of the child or the mother, the leave may be extended to up to 30 working days, as specified in the resolution.

On the other hand, the proposed reform regarding the reduction of the workweek to 40 hours, which would entail two days of rest for every five days of work, has been postponed for discussion and, if applicable, approval to the first session of Congress in the year 2024.
