Malta -Unions welcome parental leave -January 06, 2014

The government's proposal to enable parents to use their sick leave whenever they needed it to take care of their sick children was welcomed by the trade unions. There was a clear consensus among the members of the Malta Council for Economic and Social Development on the need to encourage more women and carers of children to participate in the labour market. It is therefore high time that such parents are not just encouraged but assisted to participate in the labour market.
