The prosecutor of the republic sent to the Supreme Council a request for interpretation of paragraph 5 of Article 252 of the Labor Code. The reason for the appeal was the need to eliminate legal uncertainty in matters related to long-term service periods for prosecutors on child-care leave. Deputies of the Committee on Social Policy prepared the interpretation of the norms of current legislation. This issue was on the agenda of today's meeting.
According to the amendment to the Labor Code in 2017, when granting a pension, the period of parental leave is included in the total length of service, but is not counted when granting retirement benefits. At the request of the Prosecutor of the PMR, the relevant committee prepared a corresponding draft resolution of the Supreme Council.
