Public Hearings at the National Assembly of RA (27.10.2014)

From 2.30 till 6 pm on October 27, 2014 public hearings on the drafted amendments and supplements to the Law on Temporary Disability Allowance, which must come into effect from January 1, 2015, took place at the National Assembly. These hearings were organized by the Standing Committee on Social Affairs of the National Assembly of RA. Representatives of non-governmental organizations, including Women's Rights Center's Director Susanna Vardanyan and Lawyer Anaida Simonyan, activists, deputies from different parliamentary parties and other interested persons participated in the hearings and forwarded questions to the representatives of the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs. Heated discussion on the issue of the reduction of working pregnant women's allowance took place. As long as the participants didn’t receive exhaustive explanations on the issue, the agreement was reached to submit to the National Assembly not only the drafted amendments and supplements to the existing law but also a summary with the opinions and proposals expressed at the hearings.
