Civil servants get extended maternity leave

Civil servants get extended maternity leave

By Cassandra Tanti - July 5, 2019

Women employed by the Government of Monaco and the National Council will now have access to the same number of weeks of maternity leave as those in the private sector.

The National Council recently passed a bill extending the duration of maternity leave in the private sector from 16 to 18 weeks. The Prince’s Government promised that female civil servants and state agents would soon benefit from the extension.

On Friday 5th July a Ministerial Order confirmed that, “in the constant concern to protect the health of a mother and her child”, mothers working in the administration will now be granted the extended period of maternity leave, “to maintain, at best, a balance between family and professional life.”
