5 May 2023 1 min read

On 24 April 2023, the Danish Government and contracting parties have entered into an agreement on the Finance Act for 2023. The agreement introduces a new initiative to help parents of twins by setting aside a framework of resources to introduce 26 weeks of additional leave with maternity benefit for parents of twins. In 2023, the Minister for Employment will discuss the implementation of the framework with the parties to the agreement, including how to support parents taking the additional leave at the same time. The entry into force will depend on the specific model.
