Three years for Member States to adopt EU Work-life Balance Directive

EU Member States have three years to adopt the laws to comply with the EU Work-life Balance Directive. Launched in August 2019, the Directive aims to improve the work-life balance for parents and carers, to encourage  shared parental leave between men and women and to address women’s underrepresentation in the labour market.

To improve work life balance, employers need to focus on strategies like providing flexibility around work, increasing employees' sense of control and creating a more supportive work environment.
