Parental Leave aka Childcare Leave in Korea

I've written about maternity leave and paternity leave before. There is also an optional leave that either parent can take. Here's what the laws say as far as employment insurance go. Here's some information in English.

Additional Time Off: Parental Leave
You can take up to a year off as unpaid leave (though here it says they get 40% of their base salary with a max of 1 mil won) known in Korea as childcare leave "육 아휴직". You can legally take up to a year of unpaid leave while your child is under 6 (72 months) providing you've been with the same employer more than a year. There is a grey area surrounding teachers who are on a one year contract that have been renewed.

Tender Embrace Birthing offers childbirth, breastfeeding, and newborn care classes and support.
