La conciliation de la vie professionnelle, privée et familiale. L'approche juridique de l'Union européenne
EU law influences significantly the national law of the Member States of the EU in the field of equal treatment between men and women and the reconciliation of work, private and family life. This article presents an overview of the objectives of the EU, the current legal developments at the EU level and some case law of the Court of Justice of the EU in these areas. The Court has certainly contributed to strengthening the position of pregnant women. However the role of the case law in realising a more equal sharing of family responsibilities between the sexes remains rather modest. New approaches to reconciliation issues merit further attention, both at Community and national level. JEL classification codes: K36, H31, Y80.
