How to pay wages during maternity leave in 2017
Many expectant mothers are very concerned about the issue of maternity leave wages. How much can maternity leave wages be paid for pregnant women? What are the explicit provisions of the 2017 labor law on maternity leave wages? Let's have a look!
First, maternity leave, salary according to sick wig
The maternity leave is issued by the doctor, so the salary is paid according to the treatment of sick leave.
Second, antenatal leave, pay 80%.
If you are pregnant for more than 7 months, if you have a work permit, you can apply for two and a half months' prenatal leave with the approval of your company. In some cases, leave is required by local laws and regulations, and the unit shall approve the leave, and the salary shall be 80% of the employee's actual monthly salary.
Third, maternity leave, maternity allowance
In areas where the social co-ordination of maternity insurance is implemented, the payment standard shall be the average monthly wage of the employees of the enterprise in the previous year; in areas where the social co-ordination of maternity insurance is not carried out, the maternity allowance shall be paid by the enterprise or the unit, and the standard shall be the basic wage and price subsidy before the birth of female employees.
The maternity leave includes: 98 days + 30 days (late childbearing) + 15 days (dystocia) + 15 days (multiple births with each additional baby), receiving the birth allowance. Maternity allowance is subsidized by the state to enterprises to pay wages during maternity leave, but its calculation method is related to the declared wage base of the company in the social security department, so the actual maternity allowance and maternity leave wage are not equal, so there is a regulation: maternity leave wage and maternity allowance are highly paid, which is simply:
1. If the employee's maternity leave salary (i.e. the employee's actual monthly salary standard, the same below) is higher than the maternity allowance, it is OK to pay the employee according to the maternity leave salary, and the maternity allowance will be returned to the enterprise
2. If the employee's maternity leave salary is lower than the maternity allowance, the employee can be paid according to the maternity leave salary first, then the maternity allowance will be paid down, and the difference between the maternity leave salary and the maternity allowance will be supplied to the employee, and the rest will be returned to the enterprise
Fourth, breastfeeding leave is paid at 80% of the salary for six and a half months, and 70% for the extended period.
After childbearing, if there is any difficulty and work permit for female employees, the application shall be made by the female employees themselves. With the approval of the unit, they can apply for six and a half months of breast-feeding leave. The salary shall be 80% of the employee's previous monthly actual salary, and 70% of the extended period.
