leave will benefit companies, Senator Risa Hontiveros said Sunday.

The Employers’ Confederation of the Philippines earlier warned that extending paid maternity

leave to 105 days from the current 60 days will push companies to hire men over women.

Hontiveros, be that as it may, said this will give ladies more opportunity to recoup from pregnancy

and labor, and meanwhile enable their infants to appreciate the medical advantages of selective birth nourishing.

With both the mother and her infant sound, ladies will be less inclined to take leaves from work, making them more gainful, the representative told.

Further, the Senate and the House of Representatives have both approved the extended maternity leave charge, making ready for President Rodrigo Duterte to sign it into law.
