Maternity and parental leave
I am a bit confused about maternity leave and parental leave in Belgium. I have been doing some research, but still cannot find answers to my questions. In Belgium, how long a woman can stay at home to look after the baby and receive a full salary? Is it 4 months? What happens after 4 months, can a woman still stay at home and receive full salary? If I understand correctly, maternity leave is 4 months (with full salary). Afterwards, if one decides not to return to work, she can take parental leave, but salary decreases?
