Women MPs initiative: teachers employed under the individual fixed-term contract will benefit from paid annual leave
Teachers from educational institutions employed under the individual fixed-term employment contract, for at least one year of study or one academic year, will benefit from annual paid leave, as well as from the leave allowance.
Date: Friday, March 19, 2021
The Parliament has approved, within today's plenary session, a draft amendment to Article 299 of the Labor Code.
The explanatory note to the draft law mentions that at present there is a frequent violation of the right to paid annual leave for teachers with retired status due to the erroneous application of the Labor Code by some employers. Thus, the promotion of the draft law will ensure the unitary implementation of the normative framework in the field of labor relations with employees in the educational system.
The legislative initiative has been launched as a result of the consultations of women MPs from the Joint Platform for Dialogue of Women MPs with women elected to local public authorities, which took place during March.
The consultations were organized with the support of the programme for Strengthening the Role of the Parliament in Improving Gender Equality in the Republic of Moldova, implemented by UNDP Moldova, UNICEF, UNFPA and UN Women and were part of a series of actions planned to relaunch the Women’s Caucus in the Parliament of the Republic of Moldova.
