  5. The employer's duties are:
  • Give wide disclosure to its employees about the possibility of supporting the return to work of their wives or partners after the end of the maternity leave period;
  • Provide guidance on the procedures required to sign an individual agreement to suspend the employment contract with qualification; and
  • Promote periodic awareness actions on responsive and equal parenting to drive adoption of the measure by its employees.
