Original title: Henan added parental leave for both spouses 10 days a year
On November 27, the 28th meeting of the Standing Committee of the 13th Henan Provincial People’s Congress voted and passed the “Decision of the Standing Committee of the Henan Provincial People’s Congress on Amending the Regulations on Population and Family Planning in Henan Province” (hereinafter referred to as the “Decision” ), which clarifies that before the children reach the age of three, each spouse shall be given ten days of parental leave each year, and the parental leave shall be regarded as attendance. The “Decision” shall come into effect on the date of promulgation.
The “Decision” clarified the three-child policy, abolished social support fees, and deleted the issuance of the “One-Child Parents Glory Certificate” and other regulations that are not compatible with the three-child policy. Among them, it is clear that a couple (including remarried couples) can have three children; couples who have given birth to three children and have children who have been identified as disabled can have one more child.
As of November 20, the total number of three-child registrations online in Henan Province was 29,371. (Headquarters reporter Tian Meng and Wang Yidan)
