“Family 500+” benefit and women on the labour market – materials

November 8 2017
The materials from the international IBS seminar on the female labour force participation in Poland and the impact of the “Family 500+” programme on the labour supply of women (Oct 24, Warsaw).

Since the introduction of the “Family 500+” programme, fears were raised that the programme would likely decrease the economic activity of mothers, which is already lower than that of fathers and women without children. The latest research on the actual impact of the programme on the mothers’ economic activity were presented during the seminar.

We published the presentations:

and the summary of the panel discussion entitled “If, why and how to increase women’s labour market activity?” (see the seminar website). Panel discussion chaired by Grzegorz Osiecki (Dziennik Gazeta Prawna) was participated by: Lech Antkowiak (Warsaw Labour Office), Anna Karaszewska (Jobs First), Paweł Kubicki (Warsaw School of Economics – SGH) and Barbara Surdykowska (The Independent and Self-Governing Trade Union „Solidarność”).
