    Can you imagine if for example they had 2 employees and both wanted to go on say maternity leave

    For many this would cause the company to fail
    Not necessarily. Such a scenario is pretty unlikely but with good planning, one can work around it. I would say that if a small company is so dependent on its employees, once again, it is a failed business. No company no matter how small should be held ransom by the abilities of its employees.

    Places like Sweden don't seem to have a problem and there both men and women can take paid leave for months at a time. But companies see the benefits to society which are reflected back into the work place and everyone prospers.
