Changing Work Patterns
There are now many different patterns of work. These include part-time work, flexi time, job sharing, shift work and teleworking. A recent development is the right of parents of children under the age of six or disabled children under the age of eighteen and, from 6th April 2007, to carers of adults to apply to their employer to work more flexibly. The request can cover hours of work, times of work and place of work and may include requests for different patterns of work.
