Parental leave in Sweden

Work–life balance is one of the overarching principles for gender equality in Sweden. Everyone, regardless of gender, should have the right to work and support themselves, as well as to balance career and family life.

Sweden offers one of the best parental leave ("föräldraledighet") policies in the world. Parents are granted a total of 480 days of leave per child, with 180 additional days given for twins.


Skåne, in the southernmost part of Sweden with its vibrant, innovation-based economy and booming start-up scene, is a regional champion and national showcase.
