What next ?
So what next then, piad leave until the child is three, or five, or 11 or eighteen, or ...
Sorry, but I fail to see why being paid to not work is considered such a right ?
When can I claim my time off for not having children ? After all, if I don't have children then I don't get 6 or 12 months off work while being paid - and surely that's discrimination against non-parents ?
Those with a sense of humour bypass need not comment, and the above is said with a hint of jest - but it does seem a reasonable question to ask.
