Paternity Leave

Has the Coalition Government totally lost the plot? They profess to being enthusiastic to reduce unemployment particularly for young persons and they admit that the key is to encourage small and medium size employers to take on additional staff. The new paternity leave proposals will do the opposite. Small businesses will not risk the disruption that is inevitable if male employees are given the right to take part or all of the maternity leave from their partner. The result will be businesses avoiding taking on and training persons under 35. This will of course be of some help to those not wishing to retire. As the Federation of Small Businesses say "This is the wrong measure at the wrong time".
