Article 42A - Termination after Marriage or Maternity Leave

The Employer cannot terminate the employment of a female employee for reasons of marriage or pregnancy. If an Employer terminates the Employment of a female Employee within the 6 months after her marriage or childbirth, the Employer must prove the termination is not because of marriage or pregnancy. If the Employer fails to provide such proof, the Employer must pay compensation equal to the salaries the Employee would have earned from the date of termination to the date on which the 6th month from marriage or childbirth ends.
