This chapter discusses the rights of employed parents in a recently partly privatised finance company in Slovenia. It explores the ways in which these rights bequeathed under a former Socialist regime are played out in the changing context of Slovenia's transformation to a market economy. The case study demonstrates how the legacy of paternalism from the former Socialist regime contributes to the continued construction of work-family issues as individual and state responsibilities rather than employer concerns or business issues. In this context, parents, specifically mothers, bear the impact and burden of political and organisational changes associated with the transition to a market economy and increased global competition.

Keywords:   rights, employed parents, Slovenia, Socialist regime, market economy, legacy of paternalism, work-family issues
