What are the legal guidelines for maternity leave?
What are your rights as an expectant mother?
What should your compensation be during maternity leave?
Are you subject to discrimination at your work place or while trying to find employment?
Center for Moms advocates that no woman in Serbia should be discriminated against just because she became or wishes to became a mother. We believe that motherhood should be a free choice for any woman, and that no mother should be forced to choose between her livelihood and motherhood. We believe that a society of equal opportunities for all is the only right way and that enacted law must be honored. We also believe that all employees contribute in their own way, and only companies with people of diverse backgrounds and life experience can be productive and truly successful. In the end, we trust that no woman must or should choose between career and family, and that with good organization and the support of the community at large, she can make anything work in her favor. Considering that the reality for mothers in Serbia is full of challenges, and that labor law, which guarantees their rights, is sometime uncertain, Center for Moms offers legal assistance.
