WRITTEN QUESTION by Simon Busuttil (PPE‑DE) to the Commission

 Subject: Dismissal of pregnant women during probation periods

Further to parliamentary Question E‑5052/07, the Commission considered that Council Directive 92/85/EEC(1) also applies to pregnant workers and workers who have recently given birth or are breastfeeding, during probation periods.

At the time the Commission was in the process of monitoring the transposition of Council Directive 92/85/EEC in the new Member States.

What stage has the monitoring process reached? Has the Commission determined whether Maltese legislation is compatible with Council Directive 92/85/EEC? Can the Commission confirm whether Maltese law will be changed to ensure that pregnant women are not dismissed during probation periods?
