Abstract: The report focuses on the proposed changes to maternity leave as approved by the European Parliament in October 2010. It discusses the length of the leave and who should be responsible for the related cash benefits. It also looks at the reactions of government, employers and the social partners. The economic costs and benefits of the extended maternity leave are also debated. The report suggests that a publicly funded, generous maternity leave can go a long way in ensuring that the economic and employment security of mothers is not compromised.
