Due to the recent closing of schools, the Romanian Parliament has adopted a law (draft law no. 337/ 2019) which ensures paid leave to parents whose children are temporarily forced to stop attending their classes. This measure is attributed to “bad weather conditions or other extreme circumstances”, as decreed by the competent authorities and will thus apply also in other situations than those created by the Coronavirus.
