Introducing family-friendly policies can benefit both employers and employees. Employers should always be looking to recruit from the widest possible cross-section of people, so provisions should be made to accommodate parents and people with other responsibilities outside of work.
This week, we’ll be looking at the benefits of embracing family-friendly policies and how to implement them into your business.
Questions of the day
Deminos director Sam Corcoran will be answering the following common questions that often surround family-friendly policies:
Does an employee need to provide a reason when making a flexible working request?
Can an employer withdraw from a flexible working agreement?
Is there a limit on the amount of emergency leave an employee can take?
Can custom and practice override the terms of a contract?
