Labor Ministry readies changes to maternity allowances
October 5, 2012
Poland's Labor Ministry plans to change regulations concerning maternity allowances for women running businesses as current law opens the gate for financial abuses, the daily Gazeta Wyborcza reports.
At present, a number of mothers-to-be register an enterprise at the end of pregnancy to receive up to PLN 7,500 gross monthly allowance for half a year. The Ministry intends to diversify the level of allowance depending on the length of running the business.
