New rules (the “New Provisions”) on protection of female employees have been introduced. These cover the following areas:

Prohibited work for female employees – now divided into four categories as: "under normal conditions", "during pregnancy", "during the nursing period" and "during the menstrual period". More types of work have
been classified as "prohibited", such as work in confined spaces (for pregnant employees).

  • Maternity leave has been extended from 90 days to 98 days.
  • Maternity benefits have been redefined.
  • Sexual harassment provisions - employers must take precautionsto safeguard female employees from sexual harassment in theworkplace. This provision is a general one and more detailed rules are expected soon.
