1. If I am a health worker and, because of the declaration of the state of alarm, I cannot start receiving the benefit for the birth and care of a child on the date of birth or adoption, can I start it on a different date?
- Yes, workers and civil servants in the service of the civil health authorities of the public administrations, as well as personnel who may be called upon as a measure to reinforce the National Health System, may suspend the start of the rest of the service. This measure also applies to workers in sectors providing compulsory services (fire brigades, police officers, etc.)
- This possibility will not apply to women in the case of biological births during the first six weeks, since such compulsory rest is justified on health grounds.
