With a landmark reform that now allows working women 26 weeks of paid maternity leave, India now ranks 3rd globally in terms of compensating its working mothers. This also leaves behind developed countries like Japan, France and Germany that offer a paid maternity leave of 14 to 16 weeks.

Join us on today's episode of Heads Up as we find out how the reform will impact India's working mothers and their job prospects at corporates, startups and SMEs.
