Maternity Leave in Iran
Employed women are entitled to nine-months of paid leave in case of child birth. At least 3 months of this leave period should be after child birth, and the rest could be taken during pregnancy. Two-thirds of the salary is paid by the Social Security Organization during this period; however, employers also have certain commitments during this period. For instance, new year bonus, severance payment, family-costs bonus, etc. should be paid by the employer.
