Gov’t Approves Revision on Better Maternity Protection

Working women will likely be able to take their maternity leaves during their pregnancy or for infertility treatment starting as early as the second half of next year.
At a Cabinet meeting on Tuesday, the government approved a revision of a law prohibiting discrimination in the workplace based on gender and promoting a healthy work-life balance.
Under the revisions, working mothers with children aged eight or younger will be able to work shorter hours for as long as two years.
Designed to boost the nation’s low birthrate and help working mothers maintain their careers, the revision will be finalized after a parliamentary review. The government aims to put the revision into effect on July first, 2017.
