Deputy Premier in the Cayman Islands Chris Saunders has pledged to make adjustments to local legislation to bring the island’s employment benefits regime in line with international standards.
This pledge, he says, will include maternity and paternity leave entitlements.
Mr Saunders, who met last month with members of the Parental Entitlements Working Group, says he has been pushing for maternity leave for some time now.
He informed that work is ongoing on to address concerns about all existing employment benefits.
