      Maternity Leave Extension When Baby Hospitalized

      The Knesset plenum approved the second and third readings of the extended maternity leave bill proposed by MKs Yaakov Asher, Uri Maklev and Moshe Gafni (UTJ).

      According to the proposal, an employee will be entitled to extend her maternity leave up to 20 weeks in case of her child's hospitalization, or until the end of the hospital stay. Additionally, in the event the employee had full vocational training, she will be entitled to maternity wages for the entire extended leave period, or up to twelve weeks in the event of partial training.
