Revising the Maternity Leave Directive

21-10-2011

The first reading of the revision, proposed in 2008, to the Maternity Leave Directive has yet to be concluded. The EP has adopted its position, voting, inter alia, to increase minimum paid leave beyond the Commission's proposal. In the Council, however, progress has halted, with many Member States expressing strong reservations over both Commission and EP positions.
