Jana Maláčová (Social Democrats), due to be appointed Labour and Social Affairs Minister on Monday, has said she will propose that the parental leave benefit be increased by 40,000 crowns by the end of 2019 to reach 260,000 crowns.
The parental leave benefit is paid monthly for a period of up to four years. Parents can opt to draw down more money over a shorter period, with the monthly allowance currently capped at 32,640 crowns.
