Legal issues

For the woman who becomes pregnant on behalf of another woman a compensation is provided for covering the absence from work, which is necessary for the achievement of pregnancy, pregnancy, delivery and puerperium. If the pregnant woman works in a dependent employment relationship, compensation is due only if during the absence from work, she was not paid, for any reason, a salary or daily wages. The amount of the compensation results by solemn declaration of the pregnant woman, in which the time of absence from work and the loss of income are specified. If the pregnant woman is unemployed, the amount of the compensation covers the remuneration that, based on her professional training, she would have received if she was working. In any case, the compensation cannot exceed the amount of 10,000 euros. The compensation is due only if the judicial permission required by law has been granted (Government Gazette 670/ISSUE B/ 16-4-2008).
