Helping employees balance work and caregiving responsibilities: Em4-3/2016E-PDF

tips for employers.

"Employees of all ages are caring for, or may one day care for, a family member or friend with a short or long-term health condition, disability, or aging-related need. Canada’s economy, employers, and families all benefit greatly from this unpaid caregiving. Most employees successfully manage their caregiving responsibilities with help from their family and friends, as well as community supports and services. Some employees, however, face some barriers when it comes to finding balance between work and caregiving responsibilities. This can result in challenges for these employees and their employers. Solutions to these situations reside in building an inclusive and flexible workplace to help employees meet their work and caregiving responsibilities. Developing proactive strategies to support employees with caregiving responsibilities creates a win-win situation for both employees and employers”--p. 1-2.
