Definition

Career breaks are an important mechanism in terms of enabling reconciliation of work, private and family life. Maternity-related career breaks are connected to the following: employment security laws prohibiting dismissal during pregnancy; maternity, parental and paternity leave; a period of more flexible working time after the return to work; and ensuring the right to reinstatement in the same job or an equivalent one with the same pay.
