The Maternity Benefit (Amendment) Act, 2017 received the assent of President of India in March 2017. The related Maternity Benefit Bill was passed by both houses of the parliament in the same month. Besides revising paid maternity leave to 26 weeks from 12 weeks earlier, the new law mandates that companies with more than 50 employees provide a Daycare or Crèche facility within a prescribed distance from the workplace.

Working parents can’t focus on work when they’re scrambling to find alternate child care arrangements. And even when everything goes to plan, there are still times when regular care won’t be available. Our suite of Back-up Care services gives employees peace of mind so they can stay present and productive. We care for their loved ones, so they can focus on doing what they love.
