«Temporary Disability. Open Dialogue» Seminar (23.10.2014)

On October 22, 2014 seminar on the subject «Temporary Disability. Open Dialogue» took place at “Gortsq” Press Club. Artem Asatryan, Minister of Labor and Social Affairs, Smbat Saiyan, State Social Security Service Deputy Director, representatives of non-governmental organizations, including Women’s Rights Center’s lawyer Anaida Simonyan, civil society members and other stakeholders participated in the seminar. S. Saiyan represented the draft amendments and supplements to the Law on Temporary Disability Allowance, international experience on the procedure of temporary disability allowance calculations and presented the volume of funds directed at temporary disability, pregnancy and maternity allowances. The participants of seminar expressed opinion according to which there was a necessity to pay the allowance for unemployed pregnant women, but not at the expense of the allowances of employed pregnant women. The participants also protested against the amendment according to which the above-mentioned allowance is calculated by the years of work experience. In the judgment of representatives of different NGOs the adoption of such amendments to the Law will bring to the reduction of birth rate. Meanwhile, the representatives of the Ministry of Labor and Social Justice promised that all the opinions and proposals of the stakeholders would be taken into consideration for finding a proper solution of this problem.
