This paper aims to make a convincing issue for providing paternity leave for fathers in Bangladesh by expressing several benefits of paternity leave to the family and the business. Children are an essential asset, and reasonable effort and care should be given to them when they are born. Parents must guarantee that they are well cared for to improve their children’s future. The active participation of both parents is required for the proper development of children. This paper addresses the necessity of paternity leave in Bangladesh by making a comparative study of laws of different countries regarding paternity leave and recommends enacting laws regarding paternity leave in Bangladesh. Because of the numerous benefits of paid paternity leave worldwide, the need for paternity leave has become a necessity, if not mandatory.
