Morocco’s Parliament to debate paid period leave

Morocco’s Parliament is set to debate a bill that would see women granted paid period leave.

The proposed bill aims at improving the condition of women at work.

Female employees will not need to provide medical evidence every time they need to be away from work.

If the bill becomes law, it will be rolled out in phases, starting with government employees, as a way of assessing how effective and practical it would be.

Other countries that offer paid menstrual leave include South Korea, Japan, Taiwan and Indonesia.

Spain’s cabinet in May approved a bill that grants paid medical leave for women who suffer from severe period pain, but the proposed legislation must still be approved by parliament.
