Company initiatives for workers with care responsibilities for disabled children or adults

Report that presents the results of Eurofound’s work on company initiatives for workers with care responsibilities for disabled children or adults.

The research focused on initiatives that employers can take to support the needs of workers who have (informal) care responsibilities, including parents caring for children with disabilities and carers of adults who need care because of disability, illness or old age.

The main part of the research involved identifying and describing case studies of ‘companies’ (which refers to public or private sector employers) that have implemented approaches to support working carers. The EU and Member State policy and social dialogue contexts were also examined, as were
literature and statistical data on the theme of caring and employment.
