On October 18th PEN organized a study circle with IPKO’s staff and members of IPKO labor union. Once again, the topic of discussion was the Draft Law Amending the Labor Law No. 03/L-212.
This time participants discussed in detail the amendments pertaining the maternity leave, emphasizing the importance of transferring the rights of leave from the mother to the father of the child. Another important part of the law that was contested by the participants was the detailed specification for the rights of the employer versus the rights of the workers, that were less elaborated.
This activity is part of “Pro WO+MAN” project, financed by Olof Palme International Centre and supported by the Swedish Government.
