Sub section 5 of The maternity benefit amendment Act which allows extended WFH at mutually agreed time between employee and employer came into the picture in 2017 but how many of us know about it? It again came to the fore during covid as an advisory.

By extending this benefit only to women, are we fortifying a belief that parenting is only a woman’s job? Is it perpetuating the stereotype and social conditioning that primary caregiver for a child is the mother.

How does this impact differently to new mothers in nuclear family versus those in joint family?

If women choose to avail this “benefit”, how does it impact their performance appraisal and growth opportunities in the eyes of managers against those who worked from office?
