In Portugal, at the official level, parents were allowed to skip work if their child is less than 12 years old and they are civil servants.
True, not every time, but only on the first day of school.
On the first day of study, parents are allowed to be three hours late for work.
This rule includes all children in the family who are under 12 years of age, for this reason, large civil servants are allowed to be absent from the workplace for much longer than three hours.
This law is an integral part of the state program of the Portuguese government, which aims to harmonize the family life of public sector employees so that personal life does not interfere with work and vice versa.
