Post subject: Flexible working, maybe this is the right forum to put under
Please help I need a bit of advice and any good stories regarding flexible working requests! I haveput a post in the life forum section but only had one response?!!
I am taking the plunge and I am going to ask my employer if I can reduce my days, only by one, I have been looking at direct gov. I'm really nervous as my boss wasnt very nice to me when I was pregnant and it is stressing me out already.
Does anyone know what rights you have and any good websites or people to contact?
Has anyone successfully requested less hours/days?!!
Also I contcated family information services who basically read out what was on direct gov and acas.

Hi, You can request for 'flexible working hours' however they only have to 'consider it' but they do need to give you a full reason why it has been denied if thats what they decide. This applies to any Mother who has a child under the age of 16.
Hope this helps, Direct Gov and ACAS are good websites to look at.
