Abstract

The overall research aim is to examine employment problems for a certain population risk group in Latgale region and make proposals for tackling these problems. The research object is a population risk group – individuals after their child care leave, as this population group faces a high unemployment probability after their child/children care leave ends. According to a survey, a certain population risk group faces various employment problems in Latgale region, and the availability of the labour market and the reduction of discrimination in Latgale region have to be tackled at the national government level by imposing certain reliefs, so that any such population groups are respected in the labour market. Besides, various government support measures have to be taken to integrate individuals after their child care leave into the labour market in Latgale region.
