Maternity leave is still an issue in many countries but the UAE is on the move.

Maternity leave can be a huge issue for many women and their career plans.

Being a mother, being a professional, being forced to make a choice between career and family.

And then there is the whole question of paternity leave.

Who is giving it and who is not?

The UAE gives 3 days to government employees but a nice 3 month to mothers, thankfully.

Sharjah takes it a step further and gives a 4th month without pay.

So the question was simple, should business and private industry be leading the way or waiting for a government mandate?

Here are the links from the show.

Maternity and Paternity leave? Should the private sector be leading?
