In December 2015, the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress deliberated on the amendment (Draft) to the population and family planning law, which stipulates that couples who meet the policy of childbearing can obtain the reward of extended maternity leave or other welfare treatment. As for how to extend the maternity leave, the provinces, autonomous regions, municipalities directly under the central government and other provinces shall formulate specific implementation measures in combination with the local actual situation.
Since the revised population and family planning law was reviewed and adopted by the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress on December 27, 2015, local family planning regulations have been revised successively. According to the investigation, at least nine provinces of Anhui, Shanxi, Jiangxi, Guangxi, Guangdong, Hubei, Tianjin, Zhejiang and Ningxia have officially issued new family planning regulations. In the new regulations, these nine places all cancelled the late marriage leave, and made some adjustments to the maternity leave, male paternity leave and nursing leave. After the adjustment, the marriage leave in Shanxi reached 30 days, the maternity leave in Anhui, Jiangxi and other places was 158 days, and the paternity leave for men in Guangxi and Ningxia was extended to 25 days.
In addition, the draft amendments to the family planning regulations in Beijing, Jilin, Liaoning, Shandong, Sichuan, Yunnan and other places are already soliciting opinions or waiting for the provincial people's Congress to consider and approve them Provincial marriage leave, late marriage leave, maternity leave, paternity leave (nursing leave) in Anhui Province, 3 days, 20 days, 158 days, 10 days (living in a different place, 20 days), Shanxi Province, 30 days, 158 days, 15 days, Jiangxi Province, 3 days, 15 days, 158 days, 15 days, Ningxia Province, 3 days, 15 days, 25 days, Guangxi Province, 3 days, 12 days, 148 days, 25 days, Guangdong Province, 3 days, 10 days, 128 days, 15 days, Hubei Province, 3 days, 15 days, 128 days, 15 days, 15 days Tianjin 3 days, 7 days, 128 days, 7 days, Zhejiang 3 days, 12 days, 128 days, 15 days
Days of marriage leave
There is no regulation at the level of law, only at the level of administrative regulations and normative documents.  l.z.c.z. No. 29 stipulates that marriage leave shall be 1-3 days. If the two parties are not in the same place, they shall be given journey leave. This document was then aimed at state-owned enterprises. Usually we count it as three days at most.
Days of late marriage leave
There are different regulations on population and family planning in different parts of the country. Most provinces and cities extend or increase the number of marriage leave days (combined relationship), and some directly stipulate the number of marriage leave days (including relationship) in line with late marriage. See the schedule of marriage leave days in all provinces of China for details.
Note: the number of days of late marriage leave shall be in accordance with the latest documents
Late marriage: first marriage for a man of 25 years old or a woman of 23 years old
According to the 1982 instruction of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China on further carrying out family planning work, it is late marriage to postpone marriage for more than 3 years according to the legal age of marriage; late childbearing for women over 24 years old. According to the marriage law of China, the legal age for marriage is 22 for men and 20 for women. Therefore, on the basis of the legal age of marriage, the late marriage is the first marriage of young men and women over the legal age of marriage for more than 3 years, that is, the marriage of men over 25 years old or women over 23 years old; the late childbearing is to appropriately postpone the age of the first childbearing after marriage, that is, the childbearing of women over 24 years old.
The latest marriage leave in 31 provinces in 2016
In 2016, the deposit and abolition of "late marriage leave" in various provinces have also been settled. The original marriage leave, maternity leave and paternity leave (i.e. men's nursing leave) have been modified in different regions. According to the regulations issued, most provinces' marriage leave is based on the principle of canceling late marriage and childbearing and extending maternity leave. The days of marriage leave in most provinces are consistent with the national laws and regulations. 29 provinces cancelled the original late marriage leave, 11 of which deleted the relevant regulations on late marriage leave, and did not make other relevant provisions on marriage leave, so the marriage leave in these provinces will be consistent with the national laws and regulations, with only three days of legal marriage leave. These provinces include Guangdong, Hubei, Sichuan, Zhejiang, Jiangxi, Ningxia, Guangxi, Anhui, Hunan, Tianjin and Shandong. Shanxi and Gansu reserve 30 days of luxury marriage leave.
