Zambia: Government declares one day of menstruation leave each month for women


The Zambian labour law has made a provision for female workers to take off one day a month during their menstruation period in order to rest and deal with the cramps. 

The new monthly holiday is known as Mother’s Day, although it applies to all women with or without children.


The law allows women to take the leave whenever they want with no requirement to provide medical reports. This aspect of the law is presently causing a controversy in Zambia, as many are questioning the new provision.

The holiday also does not require women to give advanced notice to be absent from work. They are allowed to simply call in to declare their intent to take the leave. 

Meanwhile, the new law states that if an employer denies female workers this entitlement, such an employer would be prosecuted.
