This study examines the employment situation of parents with young children in the EU and specifically, the factors that affect parents' return to the labour market. The paper identifies interventions that could help parents return to work after family-related leave and improve labour-market integration of unemployed or inactive parents. The study outlines possible additional actions at the EU level.
