Maternity leave increased by three months in Cuba

The Government of Cuba has announced a three-month increase in the social maternity benefit, allowing mothers to spend 15 months with their babies. The measure is part of national projections to correct economic distortions and prioritize infant protection. However, the official announcement lacks specific details, leaving many questioning its implementation and legality. While some support the move, others believe the focus should be on providing daycare and extending maternity leave. This marks the second time in five years that Cuba has adopted such a measure, with the previous one granting increased rights to working mothers. The Ministry of Labor and Social Security of Cuba has stated that the Decree Law expands rights in this matter from a more inclusive perspective, reflecting the current socioeconomic circumstances of the country.
