The project “Back to Work”: mothers’ and fathers’ reintegration after the child-care leave” was presented at press-conference held on January 30 in Kyiv. The project is being implemented by League of Social Employees of Ukraine under the aegis of EU Representative Mission in Ukraine. Farmak JSC demonstrated the positive experience and practical realization of the parents’ rights in conditions of Ukrainian business.
Svitlana Tolstoukhova, President of All-Ukrainian Public Organization “League of Social Employees of Ukraine”:
“The main problem that is to be resolved within the framework of the project lays in the fact that fathers’ and mothers’ returning to work after the child-care leave is unfavorable. The employers unwillingly hire the young women expecting that they will give birth to a baby and take the child-care leave. The reason for such expectations is the employer’s uncertainty in adequate professional competency and skills of the mother who has been on the child-care leave for about 3 years. Based on the experts’ conclusions, full–fledged returning to professional environment takes about 6 months.”
