Flexible Working Consultation

  • Posted

The government has, this morning, launched a consultation to extend / revamp the right to request flexible working. The consultation will cover:

  • extending the right to request contract variations to parents with children under 16 (it is currently parents of children under 6)
  • methods of raising awareness of the right to request flexible working amongst the workforce;
  • methods of making it easier for employers to deal with requests.

The consultation document is meant to be here, but the link isn't currently working. So, if you're interested, try the Press Release instead.
