The Parental Insurance : Parental Leave and its Impact on Gender Equality on the Labour Market (English)
Abstract [en]

This Bachelor Thesis is entitled "the Parental Insurance; Parental Leave and it’s Impact on Gender Equality on the Labour Market. It’s main purpose is to to highlight the Swedish Parental Insurance impact on gender equality in the workplace with a historical overview of the development of the Swedish parantal leave versus the development of the labour market regarding women's and men's different roles there. The aim is also to illustrate the above development in Sweden through a comparison to the UK law. This Bachelor Thesis attempts to answer the following questions:

How has the regulation of parental leave and the distribution of parental leave between women and men developed over time?

How does the Swedish parental insurance maintain in an international perspective and in relation to Britain's parental insurance with respect to gender equality and the labour market?

The take-off point is that the employment rights of parental leave is of great importance for equality between women and men on the labour market. The uneven distribution of the parental leave between women and men will result in employers discriminating against women as a group. Society needs to gain more knowledge about women as a untapped labour force resource and employers must stop using or change their knowledge about men and women as a group on the labour market, depending on what the knowledge concerns. Women and men should have equal opportunities on the labour market.
