Maneuver, maternity leave changes: you will be able to work until the ninth month
With the maneuver come important news about the maternity leave that is changing. Pregnant women may choose to work until the ninth month and take full advantage of the five months after the birth to stay with the child. The neo-working mothers will be able to give up a month of rest before the presumed date of childbirth staying in the job but on one condition: the doctor must ensure that this does not lead to problems for the woman and the child she bears in her womb. The amendment of the League dedicated to the policies of the family provides this opportunity, and has been approved by the Budget commission of the Chamber. This is an alternative system to the existing one, which imposes the obligation of abstaining from work at least one month before the expected date of delivery.
An amendment of the League that provides for a change in the maternity leave, was approved by the Budget Commission in the Chamber. Expectant mothers can decide to manage it to your liking during the first five months of absence from work provided for by law. Therefore, if until now it was mandatory to refrain from work for at least a month before the presumed date of childbirth, the next year will not be so. The mom-to-be worker may decide to otherwise dispose of this period, dedicating it totally to the child after the birth. Therefore will be able to work until the ninth month of pregnancy. This, however, provides a certificate of the attending physician attesting to the good health and suitability to continue to work.
In addition to the planned changes to maternity leave, parents can get a bonus nest, as has already happened in the course of 2017 and 2018. This measure, born with the Law of Budgetary 2017, is extended until 2021. It also increases the annual amount, which goes from 1,000 to 1,500 euros. Also in this case, it seeks to help the working mothers to resume their activities, getting help in the payment of the months of nurseries. Many women in fact, because of the impossibility to leave the children to someone and because of the higher costs of nursery and baby sitter, end up leaving the job. With the family package, the Government tries to help the category of the working mothers who will now also get to choose how to use the maternity leave provided for by law when a child is born. We can only wait for further news in this regard.
