Annual reviews

The LP&R network produces an annual review of leave policies and related research, starting in 2005. This is based on country notes that follow a standard format covering: details of different types of leave; recent policy developments (including those relating to COVID-19 since 2020); information on take-up; and recent publications and current research projects (until the review 2018). The review also includes an overview of leave policies and research in participating countries and articles on leave policy issues and research. This section gives links to the full reviews, which until 2018 were published by the UK Department for Business. Since 2019, the Review was published at the publication server of the FernUniversität in Hagen (Germany), and since 2023, it has been published at the publication server of the University of Vienna (Austria) for the LP&R network. It also gives direct access to the latest country notes for individual countries. For other publications originating in the network, see news.
