    Parental Leave Policy and Long-run Earnings of Mothers

    Paid parental leave schemes have been shown to increase women’s employment rates but to decrease their wages in case of extended leave duration.

We analyze the impact of a major parental leave reform on mothers’ long-term earnings. The 2007 German parental leave reform replaced a means-tested ...
