The following infographic shows the household income when (a) both parents work (b) only the father works and (c) only the mother works according to the model proposed by D4D and the model proposed by the Government of Kosovo. In the model proposed by D4D, the family gets total of 9 months of paid leave and 5 months of unpaid leave. While in the model proposed by the government, the family receives a total of 9 months of paid leave and 11 months of unpaid leave.
Currently, the Kosovo Government is working on drafting a new labour law. Among the issues that are expected to be addressed in this law are maternity leave, paternity leave and parental leave. Maternity, paternity and parental leave affects the choices made by women and men and the opportunities available to them in the world of work. Such policies (if intended) can help foster gender equality in the framework of labour roles, pay and participation in the workplace
