The Directive was published on the 12.07.2019 and comes into force on the 01.08.2019. The directive has to be implemented into national law by the 2.08.2022 at the latest.
The Directive “lays down minimum requirements designed to achieve equality between men and women with regard to labour market opportunities and treatment at work, by facilitating the reconciliation of work and family life for workers who are parents, or carers”.
To that end, this Directive provides for individual rights related to the following: paternity leave, parental leave and carers’ leave; and flexible working arrangements for workers who are parents, or carers.
