New family-friendly employment rights will be given to parents in Jersey.
This parental leave can be taken in three blocks over a two-year period.
The proposition, made by Social Security Minister Judy Martin, faced some opposition in the States with some members saying it would have a negative impact on employers.
The new system is planned to come into force in June or July 2020. The States also voted to approve a review of the policy after 24 months.
