Update on the Work Life Balance and Miscellaneous Provisions Act 2023

August 30, 2023

Since the signing into law of the Work Life Balance and Miscellaneous Provisions Act 2023 in April of this year a number of new entitlements have entered into force. These include 5 days unpaid medical care leave per year, the extension of the period during which employees are entitled to breastfeeding breaks and the extension of maternity leave to transgender men.

A number of other entitlements, however, have yet to be commenced including paid domestic violence leave and the right to request flexible and remote working.
