According to information, the draft law of the Ministry of Labor on labor changes will provide for a ten-day paternity leave, not two days, given today and a special two-month paternity leave..
In particular, according to the relevant Community directive, our country must apply for paternity leave by July 1, 2021. Thus, the labor law will provide leave for fathers as soon as the child is born 10 days instead of two given today and a special maternity leave of two months until the child leaves 6 years. This is the corresponding special maternity protection permit that is 6 months.
The purpose of the directive that our country must implement is to ensure gender equality in terms of opportunities in the labor market and treatment at work throughout the European Union (EU), facilitating work-life balance for employees who are parents or carers.
It also sets minimum requirements for family leave (paternity leave, parental leave and care leave) and flexible working settings. It also provides incentives for men to take an equal share of care responsibilities through the introduction of paid paternity and parental leave.. The lack of this feature contributed to the low rates of parental leave.
This leave is currently granted to employees after the end of maternity leave(childbirth-maternity), of part-time to part-time leave, as well as to employees who immediately after the above intervals make use of the annual regular leave , as long as it is necessary on the basis of the annual deadlines for its granting. This right is exercised within 60 days after the expiry of the above licenses.
Beneficiaries of the special maternity protection leave are also the employees who on the day of publication of the law, ie the 3-4-2008 were on maternity leave (of childbirth- of childbirth) or on a part-time to part-time leave.
After the expiration of the special maternity protection leave, the employee is entitled to use the part-time work as it is valid..
This leave is with salaries that are equal to the minimum wage as defined each time based on the EGSEE and the paying agency is OAED.
OAED is obliged to return to IKA-ETAM the foreseen contributions for the pension sector, withholding the provided labor contribution borne by the employee together with the employer contribution borne by OAED.
