Flexible working in practice...

Now I know I said earlier today that I would blog further about the extension of the right to request flexible working to all parents of children under 16.

But I am on the way home now, and it's the kids' holidays.

So you'll just have to wait!

Sorry if this upsets any fans...

Yes, its true that the new law extending the right to request flexibility is a good thing, but I did always feel that this was a "right" in a rather strange sense of the word.
It only gives people the right to *ask* for the flexible hours - employers can still turn them down.
And, I don't know about anyone else, but I don't feel like I can ask for flexible hours, since I can barely afford to pay my bills with my full time wage, never mind dropping to part time.
