Bahrain extends maternity leave by 10 days

Parliamentarians yesterday approved a proposal ratcheting up the length of maternity leave of government employees by ten more days to 70.

Earlier, woman employees in government jobs had only 60 days to take care of her baby, before returning to work. The new rule also gives a father a three-day leave to help the mother and baby. Earlier, he had only a single day for that.
