Until recently only woman were able to apply and granted the 6-month child-care leave provided by OAED (Greece’s Employment Agency).
According to a bill submitted to parliament in October, men will now also be granted child-care leave. It will be granted, if desired, by the insured individual, after the 4-month pregnancy and maternity leave of the mother.
The monthly amount paid to the beneficiary is up to 586 Euros and is paid by OAED. Note, the child-care leave can be taken by either the mother or father, but not both individuals.
