Czech Republic -Mothers find it difficult to return to the labour market -March 10, 2014

Recent statistics reveal that women encounter major difficulties in returning to the labour market after maternity leave. Only 50% of women who take up maternity leave return to their old work places and the country has one of the highest unemployment rates of young mothers in Europe.  Researchers note that women spend twice as long on maternity leave now, compared to the 1980s. Researchers have blamed the poor re-integration on a lack of part-time jobs and the ministry of Labour and Social Affairs has instated employer incentives for firms that employ women who have been on maternity leave.
