Malta: Women workers have the right to maternity leave as guaranteed under the Regulations. Maternity leave is 126 consecutive days (18 weeks). Of these 126 days, 42 days (6 weeks) is the compulsory entitlement and is taken after birth. Four weeks leave may be taken before birth while the remaining leave (8 weeks) may be taken immediately before or after birth as an employee may request. If a worker is unable to avail the 4-week pre-natal leave before birth, this may be availed after confinement. An employee must inform the employer of her intention to avail maternity leave at least four weeks before the maternity leave begins.
