PDL tasks Botis with shortening maternity leave

PDL backs Labour Minister Ioan Nelu Botis’s decision to shorten the maternity leave, party Vice President Cristian Boureanu stated yesterday after the meeting held by PDL’s central leadership. He pointed out that the mothers that will return to their jobs after 12 months of maternity leave will receive an extra RON 500 to their monthly salaries for another 12 months. He pointed out that the financial aid is fixed and represents approximately 30 per cent of the gross average salary that stands around RON 1,800. According to Boureanu, the task that PDL gave Minister Botis is for this aid to be offered for 12 months, the mothers lacking the option to choose between extending their maternity leave to two years and receiving this financial aid. Boureanu stated that the Labour Ministry has PDL’s backing “in order to keep the minimum threshold for which the financial aid is offered at RON 600, and setting the upper ceiling at RON 3,400, representing 85 per cent of the monthly salary received before maternity leave.”
