Summary/Abstract: Maternity protection rights comprise a set of entitlements related to employment, health and economic well-being of women mothers. One of the rights that cuts across all these areas of protection is the right to maternity cash benefits. Bosnia and Herzegovina has a complex legal framework regulating maternity protection consisting of 12 separate legal regimes that are in force in different parts of the country. This paper analyses domestic legislation regulating the right to maternity cash benefits in the light of standards set by international human rights documents. Research focuses on the assessment of compliance of the legislation of Bosnia and Herzegovina with these standards and the impact of the existence of multiple legal regimes of regulation of maternity cash benefits on equality of treatment of women–mothers in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
