Parental and maternity leave to be changed

Poland's 12-month parental and maternity leave could be reduced for women as a result of a new directive proposed by the European Commission, which seeks to force parents to share the leave, Dziennik Gazeta Prawna daily writes.
If passed, the law would force men to take a 4 month leave or parents would lose that time altogether. The aim is to encourage women to return to work within less then a year after giving birth to a child.
The directive would also introduce a paid care giving leave, allowing employees to have up to 5 working days off for taking care of a child, a spouse or a parent.
This solution could generate significant costs, DGP cites Wioletta ¯ukowska-Czaplicka, an expert of the employers' lobby group Pracodawcy RP.
