Paternity Leave

The Malaysian Employment Act 1955 grants 60 days’ maternity leave to female employees, but no paternity leave to fathers. We reconsider why this might be the case, and discuss whether it’s time to give dads a break after the birth of their newborn child.

Also, if you're curious about how digital games can help your kid get an "A" for chemistry, check out our show on ChemCaper, a brand new Malaysian-made RPG that could change the way we "study". CLICK HERE TO LISTEN.
