Work Life Balance

May 24th 2018

The series of Equinet’s ’In Focus Briefs’ are short thematic papers, which highlight the work of Equinet and its members, as well as European developments on a given topic.

This one focuses on the issue of work life balance, highlighting the work of equality bodies to support work life balance, what challenges they face and good practice examples. EU level developments on work life balance are also outlined.

 

Each year on 17 May, the international community celebrates the International Day against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOT). While it is a day of celebration of the vast diversity of people’s sexualities, gender identities and sex characteristics, and of the legal and social advances concerning lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) people in the past two decades, it is also a day to raise awareness on existing widespread discrimination and violence in many countries. As in previous years, this article explains the importance of IDAHOT, the highlights of this day and the contribution of equality bodies to the advancement of equality and non-discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity to date.

 

This Handbook on strategic litigation was produced by Equinet, the European Network of Equality Bodies to serve as a useful resource for equality bodies and their partners considering to engage in strategic litigation.
