This paper analyses actual uses of child-care leave program by workers based upon two data sources. This is the first research which focus on firm-level use of child-care leave program. One of the interesting findings is a negative relationship between women's share of firms and use of child-care leave program. My conclusion is that an introduction of child-care leave program leads firms to hesitate to hire women workersbecause women cost relatively high.
