“We are excited about the new policy that offers more flexibility to our employees who will now enjoy four months paid leave as they welcome new additions to their families," she said.

This new Parental Leave Policy is a global policy that will benefit all Vodafone employees.

In a related development, Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang says the NDC will increase maternity leave from three to four months if they win the December polls.

She says they will also ensure women have enough time to themselves during the pregnancy stage.

“I sympathize with young mothers, but you will be happy to know when our manifesto is launched that we have increased the maternity leave [period].
We have moved it from three months to four months fully paid maternity leave and we are also going to ensure that until the child is nine months, the woman truly has time,” the former Education Minister noted at an event to mark International Youth Day.
