July 16, 2022 | By Colin O. Jarrett | The Government of Jamaica on Tuesday announced that maternity leave for public sector workers will increase from 40 days to 3 calendar months.

According to Finance and Public Service Minister Dr Nigel Clarke the government is also moving to provide leave for adoptive parents who are bringing a new child into the home.

Dr Clarke said to give effect to these changes, the appropriate circular will be sent out to members of the public service by September 30, noting that the cost of the new leave entitlements will be made public at a later date.

The previous law allowed public sector workers to receive 8 weeks of paid leave and 4 weeks of unpaid maternity leave.
