Our daughter is partly employed, partly self-employed. A few months ago, she has become a mother. From the operation, in which she is employed, she received her entitled to maternity compensation. She has also taken the necessary steps to be in order for the failure as a self-compensated. Now, however, the compensation Fund will inform her that she would receive nothing, because they've achieved with their work in the time before the birth of no profit. We can't understand. All professional does not have women working after the birth of a child are entitled to paid maternity leave?
Yes, that is so. Also, self-employed mothers receive a compensation from the income compensation regulations (EO). In comparison to women employees driving but often much worse. This is because the maternity compensation is calculated differently.
In two – for the self-employed as the non-independent women – based compensation on the contributions of the EO. However, while women employees pay their contributions on the gross wage, pay the self-employed women, the contributions to the net income – the income remaining after the deduction of operating expenses.
Still self-employed women will get allowance no.
to keep the net income is the taxable income, try the self-employed, this as low as possible. The effects of the benefits of social insurance: The less a woman before the birth earned, the smaller your maternity compensation.
There is another factor that has an adverse effect. So the self-employed women will get allowance not Operating, to cover during maternity leave, the current cost of doing business. In contrast, the military service – mostly men's bar is granted from the EO, such a allowance. This inequality should be corrected: An appropriate parliamentary proposal approved, the Federal Council and national Council recently.
