The Council adopted in June a Directive on work-life balance for parents and carers which aims to increase the participation of women in the labour market and the take-up of family-related leave and flexible working arrangements. This Directive is in force since 2 August 2019 and EU Member states shall bring into force the laws, regulations and administrative provisions necessary to comply with it by 2 August 2022.
