Balans mellan arbete och privatliv
On 13th June 2019, the Council adopted the Work-life balance Directive, a piece of legislation that will help working
parents and carers to reconcile work and family responsibilites, setting new or higher minimum standards across
EU countries. EURORDIS-Rare Diseases Europe warmly welcomes the Directive, since the latter has the potential to
bring concrete and long-awaited changes to the life of people with a rare disease (PLWRD) and their carers.
However, it also notices that many aspects of the legislation are left to the appreciation of the Member States and
that therefore, there is the need to wait and see how every country will deal with them.
