Abstract

The aim of this project was to review the employment and earnings potential of women who return to employment after a period of caring for children or other family members. The report includes analysis of the literature and statistical data on women’s employment histories, the kinds of jobs they do and what they are paid. It also looks at women’s qualifications and skills and the way in which their employment reflects their skills and explores employers attitudes to women returners and the training opportunities available to them.
