Work-life balance

In the April issue of Práce and Mzda periodical, Nataša Randlová and Lucie Brázdová explain what the new European directive on work-life balance for parents and carers (European Parliament and Council Directive (EU) 2019 / 1158) could mean in practice. Its aim is to enable women to better participate in the labor market and to motivate fathers to get involved in child and household care as soon as possible. It does so particularly by introducing a minimum length of the paternity leave, the amount of paternity and parental allowance and emphasising the right to work from home. The Czech Republic is obliged to transpose the Directive into its legal system by 2 August 2022 at the latest.
