Work-life balance for parents and carers proposal - Vote - 28.5.2018

Met dank overgenomen van EP-Commissie Rechten van de vrouw en gendergelijkheid (FEMM) i, gepubliceerd op woensdag 30 mei 2018.

The opinion to the EMPL report on Work-life balance for parents and carers by Ms Agnieszka KOZŁOWSKA-RAJEWICZ (EPP, Poland) was adopted by 19 votes in favour to 8 votes against, with 4 abstentions. The rapporteur proposed 44 compromise amendments (all of which were adopted), covering issues such as the 4 months of non-transferability of parental leave and the level of payment which is equal to the national payment for the maternity leave in case of paternity leave, while it is at least 80% of the worker's gross wage in case of parental and carers' leave. FEMM members additionally voted to bring the definition of carers' leave in line with the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and put focus on the needs of micro businesses, while bringing more specificity to the flexible working arrangements and, additionally, requesting the Commissions' reporting.
