THE MATERNITY PROTECTION IN THE ALGERIAN LEGISLATION ACCORDING TO THE INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS ‎AND WITH THE DEVELOPMENT IN THE SPREAD OF THE CORONA EPIDEMIC (COVID 19)

The study sheds light on the various legal texts that guarantee the working woman protection ‎from the risk of childbirth and the analysis of these texts, starting with the constitutional texts, ‎the Labor Relations Law and the Social Security Law, since the latter guarantees the working ‎woman the right to a paid maternity leave under certain conditions, procedures and guarantees ‎that would ensure stability for the woman at both the professional and family levels.‎ The issue of maternity protection is also considered as a basic legal axis in international labor ‎agreements and comparative legislation. The study highlights the position of the Algerian ‎legislator on these international standards and comparative laws, especially since Algeria is ‎working hard to structure and ameliorate this protection.‎ It is known that recently, the Algerian legislator renewed the interest in the sensitive situation ‎of the pregnant woman by taking preventive measures towards her in light of the spread of the ‎Corona epidemic (Covid 19) by deciding to give her the right to an exceptional paid holiday ‎in accordance with the executive decree 20-69, related to the measures to prevent the spread ‎of the Corona epidemic (Covid 19).

Keywords: Maternity Protection, International Standards, Covid 19, Exceptional Holiday, In-Kind Payments, ‎Cash Payments.‎
