Kokkuvõte

As the average age of the European population and of the European workforce rises, more people of working age will have to combine employment with the provision of care, especially to elderly relatives. There are many actors and institutions involved in organising such care, and many institutional frameworks governing the issue of reconciling care and employment. This study shows the challenges involved in combining work and care, and what measures are available to working carers to allow them to balance these demands. Such measures may be contained in national labour legislation, collective agreements or company initiatives – or in a combination of the three. While a few EU Member States are much further along than others in terms of enabling people to combine working life with care, a great deal remains to be done in all countries to enable working carers to remain in the job market while meeting the demands of looking after a relative at home.

    Töötamise ja hooldamise ühitamine demograafiliste muutuste ajal

    Authors: 
    Eurofound

    Euroopa rahvastiku ja tööjõu keskmise eluea pikenedes peab üha rohkem tööealisi inimesi ühitama töötamist hooldamisega, eelkõige eakate sugulaste hooldamisega. Hoolduse korraldamisse on kaasatud mitmed osalejad ja asutused ning hooldus- ja töökohustuste ühitamist reguleeritakse paljude institutsioonilise raamistikega. Käesolevast uuringust selgub, kuidas töötavad hooldajad ühitavad töö- ja hoolduskohustused ning mis meetmetega saavad nad neid vajadusi tasakaalustada. Meetmed võivad sisalduda riikide tööõiguses, kollektiivlepingutes, ettevõtete algatustes või kõigi kolme kombinatsioonides. Osa Euroopa Liidu liikmesriike on teinud tööelu ja hoolduskohustuste ühitamiseks rohkem kui teised, kuid siiski on teha veel palju, et töötavad hooldajad saaksid jääda kodus sugulast hooldades tööturule.
