the Maternity leave period in Lebanon for working mothers is still 49 days only!!! (including weekends)
it is one of the lowest in the world!!!
I hope that the General Assembly of the Lebanese Parliament will vote on the Maternity leave extension from 49 days to 10 weeks (70 days) on the next General Assembly on april 3 2014.
As a new mum myself I beleive that it is a must to extend Maternity Leave to all Mothers in Lebanon,
if they want to nurse, to rest, to care for their babies , 49 days are not sufficient at ALL!!!
yalla Mps!!! I and soooo many lebanese mothers have been waiting for you to amend the labor law and extend our maternity leave to 10 weeks fully paid!
we as mothers are Watching you!!!
