The amendments to the Law on financial support of families with children have been adopted in December 2017, while they are applied staring from 1st July 2018. In addition, separate Rulebook stipulating the conditions and manner of exercising the right on financial support to families with children was rendered.

The most significant amendment of the respective law refers to the payment of the compensation of salary during maternity leave, child care leave and special child care leave. Namely, starting form 1st July 2018 the said compensation is paid directly by the Ministry for labour, employment, veteran and social issues and no longer by the employer. Employees who want to exercise their right on payment of the compensation are required to submit the request to the competent authority of the local government, its authority being authorized to determine the exact amount of compensation employee will be entitled to. 

In line with the latest amendments of the law, the maximum amount of compensation has been decreased. Therefore, the compensation of salary during maternity leave, child care leave and special child care leave cannot be higher than three average salaries in Republic of Serbia, instead of the previous maximal amount of five average salaries
