File photo / The new law only covers civil servants and state employees
The extension of maternity leave in Mozambique from 60 to 90 days will apply only to public officials. The question now is whether the private sector will follow suit.
Civil servants of both sexes are in agreement with the measure, but if the aim is to protect women’s health and the well-being of the newborn child, it sets a precedent for the private sector, which is not covered by the regulations.
Frelimo MP Caifadine Manasse says he hopes that the private sector will have the common sense to adopt the same measure for its employees.
Renamo deputy and university professor Alfredo Magumisse foresees a complicated dialogue in the private sector over adopting the measure.Source: Voa Portugues
