Taipei, July 19 (CNA) The Taipei City government has become the first local government in Taiwan to grant gay employees marriage and paternity leave if they register their relationship at a household registration office.

Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je (柯文哲) said on Wednesday that because the Civil Code has yet to be amended within two years following a Constitutional Court ruling upholding same-sex marriage, marriage and paternity leave rules have yet to be revised in the private sector.

But gay public sector employees will now be allowed to take marriage and paternity leave if their marriages are officially registered, Ko said.    [FULL  STORY]
