    Your question is very nice, wife is a part of every husband life. So, you have to give the leave to him. Based on the time the days may be change.

    Dear..

    A person can definitely get paternity leave if his wife is expecting a baby. There is no such rule that means the number of days of paternity leave vary from company to company and in your case first of all you should go and check the leave policies of your company and see how many days are reserved for an employee to take paternity leave.
    Generally a father is entitled for a 10 days with pay leave in the name of paternity leave. You can ask your senior also or else its better to check your company's leave policy and give away leaves according to that.

    Hope it will help

    Cheers...!!!

    It depends upon the policy of the company. But there is no labour law that when a women is going to deliver then her husband has to give leave. And there is no law that a leave cannot be given to a husband. But most of the company as far as I know give at least 1 weeks leave for looking after his wife who is going to deliver.

    According to me you have to give at least 2 weeks leave for him. It will give an impression to all the employee that their employer is giving much care and attention which will help your company to grow further.
