Right To Request Flexible Working: Comment From Grandparents Plus
Commenting on the extension of the right to request flexible working to all, Sam Smethers Chief Executive of Grandparents Plus said:
“The extension of the right to request flexible working to all has the potential to drastically improve the lives of millions of grandparents who are juggling work with providing childcare for their grandchildren.
The key is how it works in practice. Grandparents tell us what they really need is an entitlement to leave, as they don’t feel confident their employer will allow them flexible working.”
