Government approves new support measures for parents

Thursday’s meeting of the Council of Ministers approved alterations to the government’s exceptional support offered for parents. Parents with children of primary school age and single parent families will all now qualify for this support and be able to opt to telework if they are not already doing so.

The government also gave the green light to teleworking parents of young children and dependents with more than 60% disability to be able to receive 100% of their salary.
