HOUSE APPROVES MATERNITY LEAVE FROM 60, NOW 100 DAYS with pay








The House of Representatives approved Bill 4113, a bill lengthening maternity leave from the current 60 days to 100, with pay.

The bill provides for pregnant female workers in the government and the private sector with 100-day maternity leave, whether married or unmarried and whether the child delivery is normal or through caesarian section or there was a miscarriage.


The bill mandates the Department of Labor and Employment, Civil Service Commission 
and SSS to issue implementing rules and regulations.
 The mother should have paid contributions to the SSS for three months in the 12-month period before delivery to avail the benefits.
