Putting Fathers’ Care to Work: Landscape Report on Working Fathers’ Uptake of Parental Leave (2020)

This landscape report, produced by the Parental Leave Corporate Task Force, reviews current research on access to and uptake of parental leave by working fathers—and identifies barriers that keep fathers from taking more leave. Drawing from recent research from academia, civil society organizations, multilateral development institutions, and business and trade associations, Putting Fathers’ Care to Work includes recommendations for employers on designing and implementing workplace policies that encourage more fathers to use all the leave they are entitled to, for the benefit of themselves, their families, their workplaces, and society as a whole.
