Covid 19: Parents to receive sickness benefits for children all quarantine period – Lithuanian parlt

BC, Vilnius, 17.03.2020.Print version
Parents looking after children attending kindergartens and primary schools will be able to receive sickness benefits the whole quarantine period, based on the amendments adopted by the Seimas of Lithuania on Tuesday, writes LETA/BNS.

100 lawmakers voted unanimously in favor of the changes to the existing sickness benefit payment rules after the government declared a state-level emergency situation and placed the country under quarantine.

The amendments drafted by the Ministries of Social Security and Labor will come into force once President Gitanas Nauseda signs.

Up until now, parents could receive sickness benefits for children only for two weeks if an educational establishment was placed under quarantine.
