In this episode:
We place the spotlight on maternity leave policies in Papua New Guinea. PNG has been cited in various international reports that the country doesn’t have any mandated maternity leave policy.
We also talk to Professor Dr Glen Mola a gynecologist who gives advice to working women on the period of leave and in what circumstances they should utilize their leave period.
We go on to explaining the PNG General Order 14 on Leave Entitlements and what it says about maternity leave for working women in the public sector.
Some working mothers in the private sector tell us of their stories and their maternity leave experiences.
