When you work in Sweden, you are entitled to leave with parental benefits (föräldrapenning) on the same conditions as Swedish citizens. It is Försäkringskassan (the Swedish Social Insurance Agency) that administers parental benefits.
If you work in Sweden and have a child under the age of 12, you are entitled to stay home from work and receive benefits from Försäkringskassan when your child is sick.
