A Study of Indian Corporate Employee?s Viewpoint Regarding Paternity Leave

Priyanka Lalwani* and Ishita Pathak

The aim of this research paper is to study the viewpoints of the Indian corporate employees regarding the paternity leave policy in their organization, its duration, to study if there is an unwillingness among male employees to take paternity leave and the reasons for it, should paternity leaves be flexible or compulsory leave and the impact of paternity leave on father child bonding. The authors studied some critical questions regarding the subject and performed a comparative analysis on the basis of age, gender and whether or not the employee has children. The findings have supported the argument that there is a critical need for a concrete policy and more awareness for the topic. Men in India seem to have hesitations regarding being hands-on with their child because of social stigma and organizations need to be more supportive regarding the same to foster change in the current orthodox scenario in India.
