Хор хөнөөлгүй ажил

Pregnant women, women with children under 8 years of age, and single parents with children under 16 years of age may only work on night shifts and overtime with their prior consent. However, work on rest days is not prohibited for pregnant workers and no time off is provided under the law for medical examinations either. 

Pregnant women or nursing mothers are entitled to work reduced hours on the basis of a medical certificate. Furthermore, a pregnant woman or a breastfeeding mother is transferred to another job that is not detrimental to their health if relevant medical authorities determine such action as appropriate.

Although the specific professions in which pregnant women are prohibited from being employed are not mentioned within the law, there are general provisions which restrict women from lifting and carrying weights heavier than those approved by government regulations. Moreover, the Order of the Minister for Health and Social Welfare establishing the lists of the jobs prohibited to women and minors law prescribes an exhaustive list of professions considered hazardous.
