Summary/Abstract: With the last amendments to the Labour Code, made only this summer, a new leave has been introduced, as a right for fathers of children up to 8 years of age. It is a paid leave. This comes from the obligation of transposing Directive 2019/1158 that Bulgaria has as an EU Member State. The article deals with the conditions for using the leave but also raises the question whether that kind of leave is the best way to cope with the requirements of the Directive.
