Two more weeks maternity leave starting 2017
The Ministry of Labor has announced that as of 9 February 2017 maternity leave will be increased from 12 to 14 weeks. Women have the option of deciding when to take the leave, many dividing it before and after the birth and others taking it all after the birth. The extension comes with the implementation of Maternity Protection Convention, 2000 (No. 183) that provides for the 14 weeks of paid maternity leave.
