Flexible working – Will this be extended to employees with older children or not next April?
The Government had accepted the Walsh review’s recommendation on raising child-related age limit for the right to request flexible working to those with children aged up to 16 and this was expected to take effect from April 2009. However, the Government is now considering delaying implementation.

Despite the delay, this does not mean that you cannot introduce such flexibility to all staff if you wish to. In fact, in the current economic climate, you might find that employees who wish to reduce hours to work flexibly may save you overhead costs – that is assuming the business can cope with the changes requested! To discuss your options in more detail, get in touch.
