 Issue No.  2010/27




Currently, the right to request flexible working is available to parents of children aged under 17 and disabled children under 18, and carers of certain adults. However, the Government has announced that the right to request flexible working will be extended to parents of children under 18 years old from April 2011.
More information on Flexible Working and how you should respond if you receive an application for Flexible Working can be found in our Flexible Working fact sheet – in the members’ area of our website.
A consultation on extending the right to all employees, and the introduction of a flexible parental leave system, is due to be published later this year.
Sentient clients for HR support have free access to our fact sheets and other documents via our website members login.  If you want details on how you can access this then please contact us on 08456 446006.
