First Report of the German Independent Advisory Board on Work-Care Reconciliation
In June 2019, the Independent Advisory Board on Work-Care Reconciliation (Unabhängiger Beirat für die Vereinbarkeit von Pflege und Beruf) presented the first report. With this report, the Board sets out its position on the current situation regarding reconciliation of work and care by presenting the key outcomes of its consultations, pointing out options for further development and formulating concrete recommendations for action. In its first period of tenure, the Board focused its advice on the further development of the legal framework, options for financial support and working time sovereignty. It also dealt with issues relating to improving support services, expanding advisory services in a transparent manner and ways to use digital and technical products to reduce the burden in providing care.
