Currently, employees are due a maximum of 12 weeks full paid leave with six of these weeks to be taken after the date of delivery.
In order to claim six weeks leave prior to expected delivery, the employee should give a notice in writing stating the date of absence from work and a certificate of pregnancy. The employer is obliged to make payment in advance of this period. Following the date of delivery, the employee must also send another notice with a certificate of delivery. Notably, remaining payment must be transferred within 48  hours.
Ten weeks before delivery, employees are exempt from night shifts or any activities which would adversely affect their health, pregnancy or fetal development. After returning to work, employees are permitted two nursing breaks until the child is 15 months old.
