White Paper on Singapore Women’s Development: Louis Ng on equalising parental leave, legislating the right to work from home

12:03 Min

Equalise paternity and maternity leave benefits in phases, setting a target date to achieve parity. Legislate the right to request to work from home, which employers can only reject for valid business reasons. Both of these moves will enable men to take on more child-rearing responsibilities and help to reshape gendered perceptions of parenthood, said MP Louis Ng in Parliament on Tuesday (Apr 5). He also called for ending the continued stigma against single unwed parents by no longer excluding them from policies such as the Parenthood Tax Rebate, Working Mother’s Child Relief and the cash component of the Baby Bonus.
