An article published by HR Review the 18th June 2013 written by Helena Parry discusses paternity leave and whether or not it is really a money problem.

Her article says that "The Trade Union Congress released figures this week which got me thinking once again how we can address the issue of diversity in the workplace. According to the TUC less than 1% of fathers are taking Additional Paternity Leave (APL) with fewer than one in three (29%) spending longer than two weeks at home following the birth of their child."

The article goes on to say that "Well there has been more focus on encouraging more women back to work after childbirth these figures suggest to me they could also be a need to persuade more men to take longer paternity leave. There are understandably reasons behind this low number of men taking APL and the TUC highlighted the low-level of statutory pay as one of the main challenges."

The above-mentioned article further discusses "Needless to say there is some taboo around who should to be the stay at home parent after a child is born with this often falling down to the female in the relationship. However if it was financially viable for a father to take extended paternity leave would receive a greater balance in the gender divide? When you consider that these figures are in line with statutory maternity pay what could suggest that is not necessarily just about the money. So what is really holding men back?"

It is then added that "There is of course the very real possibility that men are being put off by the negative perceptions associated with a career break".
