Abstract

Este trabajo analiza el impacto de la Ley 1822 de 2017, que aumentó la licencia de maternidad de 14 a 18 semanas, en el mercado laboral femenino colombiano. Para evaluar esta política, la investigación estima las tasas en torno a la probabilidad de ser inactivo o informal en tres cohortes de población diferentes: las mujeres de 15 a 30 años, las mujeres de 31 a 65 años y los hombres de 15 a 65 años. Se encuentra que la ampliación de la licencia de maternidad aumenta la probabilidad de que las mujeres con altas tasas de fecundidad sean informales e inactivas.
