From 1st January 2010, the employee – father raising a child – has the right to paternity leave. However, as statistics show, very few fathers exercised this right. There are many reasons – lack of awareness of their rights, the lack of a reliable source of knowledge, incomprehensible rules…

In early September 2011, the portal www.urlopojcowski.info was launched. Its objective is to inspire and persuade men to become more involved in the rising of their own children. UrlopOjcowski.info is a website that was created to raise awareness and promote paternity leave. The project was born from the initiative of the International Health and Science.

The information about paternity leave are presented in attractive form and supported by reliable legal advice, useful applications and the ability to access the ” father experiences” of other parents. Although the Foundation directs this website primarily to working fathers, it offers some useful advices for working moms and employers seeking current data in the field of labor legislation.

The portal provides a number of useful tools for employees and employers, such as paternity and maternity leave calculator and model applications to download and fill in. The project is co-financed by the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy.

Urlop Ojcowski. info is the answer to all the questions of future or present fathers – www.urlopojcowski.info
