Good day to all. 

I just wanted to inquire on the status of the expanded maternity leave law. I know that it has been passed by both houses in November 2018. Has this been duly signed into law by the President?

I am an expectant mom and I am hoping to avail of this benefit if already signed into law. 

Thank you very much.
