Providing equal maternity leave and family allowance for men and women
31 – Equalising maternity leave and family allowance for men and women -www.legallaw.ul.edu.lb .pdf
In February 2000, the Supreme Court issued a resolution equalising insured individuals (men and women) with regards to maternity and health benefits, as well as family indemnities offered by Social Security Fund. Prior to the amendment, only insured men had access to health benefits and family indemnities, and were able to extend them to their wives and families. After the amendment was passed, women were granted the same rights that insured men had.
