A pregnant working woman shall be entitles to a paid maternity leave of 70 days, not include in her other leaves, provided that she gives birth within this period.

After the end of the maternity leave, the employer may give the working woman at her request, an unpaid leave for a period not exceeding four months to take care of baby.

The employer may not terminate the services of a working woman while she is on such leave or during her absence from work because of a sickness that is proved by a medical certificate that states that the sickness resulted from pregnancy or giving birth.

  17. This rule is not following in cases of public sector expact employees especially MOH , out of them 90% of the staff are females. Each Hospitals made their own policies and allowes a maximum paid maternity leave of 30 days only.

  18. Why it's not applicable for ministry staff, must be start from ministry employees also!!!!!
