Abstract: 

Government leave policy plays a significant role in determining a women’s choice to return to work after the birth of her child. My thesis provides a comparative examination of two national and two sub-national governments within Gosta Esping-Andersen's liberal regime classification and suggests that the purely liberal approach is detrimental to female workers and does not support equality in the workplace.
