New trend in social packages: Paid parental leave
The current Bulgarian legislation provides 15 calendar days of paid leave for the father after the baby and mother leave the hospital. That’s all. And the payment depends on when the father provides the documents to the company’s accounting. They on the other hand need to provide these documents to the state.
