CC rejects appeal against the Ordinance regarding parental leave and benefits

The Constitutional Court (CC) yesterday rejected the non-constitutionality appeal against the Government Emergency Ordinance (OUG) 111/2010 that regulates the parental leave and benefits, Mediafax reports. The decision of rejecting the appeal made by the groups of PSD and PNL in the Chamber of Deputies was made with unanimity of votes. The Social-Democrat and Liberal deputies challenged OUG 111/2010 on May 26, saying that the law that approves OUG 111/2010 restricts the rights of beneficiaries by reducing the interval of the parental leave and lowering the sum paid as benefits. The leader of the PSD group, Mircea Dusa, said that OUG 111/2010 is another example of “what the government has been doing in the last two years and a half: restricting the rights of people.”
