The National Legislative Assembly on Thursday passed amendments to the Labour Protection Act which will essentially increase severance pay for employees who have been working for their employers for 20 years upward.

 

The bill will also increase the maternity leave period to 98 days from 90 days, with the mothers being eligible to receive pay for 45 days from their respective employers and 45-day pay from the Social Security Fund.

 

Under the bill, employees who have worked for their employers for more than 20 years and who are laid off will be entitled to compensation amounting to 400 days of their pay instead of 300 days.
