Argentina The Loreal Mama Programme
In July 2017, L’Oréal Argentina extended its employees’ maternity leave to 105 days, which is 15 days more than the national legal requirement, with the equivalent remuneration of their salary. The company sends a present when a child is born and the return to work takes place gradually with shortened weekly schedules, compensated at the full rate. Additionally, to support mothers during their first years of motherhood, the company pays a monthly indemnity per child until the child is three years old. This indemnity, which is designed to help pay for childcare in a nursery or kindergarten, ranges between 1,300 and 2,300 pesos (for a minimum national salary of 8,060 pesos). To date, this programme has been implemented in Panama, Salvador and Guatemala.
