Speaker of the Lithuanian Parliament Viktorija Čmilėte-Nielsen proposed to establish a four-day workweek for state and municipal employees who return from maternity leave earlier. This was reported by Delfi.
"This proposal, if it is approved, and I hope it will be approved, will be in a sense a test project in Lithuania. If it proves itself, then this model could expand," noted the speaker.
It is noted that people will be paid their average wage. Such a schedule will be in effect until the child is three years old. This will apply only to state and municipal enterprises.
Chmilite-Nielsen intends to submit a draft amendment to the Labor Code.
As previously reported, Belgium may switch to a four-day work week.
