Abstract

In 2014, Austria implemented a paid care leave with full-time or part-time option. It is the first measure that explicitly aims at enhancing a parallel combination of employment and informal family care. As it was introduced only recently, there are so far hardly any findings on how this measure is being used and what using it implies for employed family carers. In this article, we present an initial empirical investigation of the paidcare leave. We do so by integrating two perspectives of analysis: For one thing, a policy-oriented analysis on the design of the measure and the contradictive ways in which it is embedded in the Austrian long-term care regime. For another, findings of qualitative empirical case studies with informal family carers.
