Flexible Working - Extension next year
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. Currently this only applies to children aged 16 and under, unless disabled and in receipt of Disability Living Allowance. Therefore you are likely to need to make amendments to your Employee Handbook at that time and update any related documentation.

A consultation on extending the right to request flexible working to all employees, and the possible introduction of a flexible shared parental leave scheme is expected to follow in 2011 with April 2012 as the likely implementation date.
