Flexible working can deliver a win-win situation where employees are happier and more engaged because they are better able to manage the various demands on their time.
In addition to contracts of employment, a number of other types of contracts exist.
An employee who is an official of an independent trade union is entitled to paid time off in certain circumstances.
Disciplinary procedures are used for dealing with problems with employees' conduct or their performance, which could lead to warnings or dismissal.
Parents of children under the age of seventeen (or disabled children under the age of eighteen) and carers of adults have the right to apply to their employer to work more flexibly.
Employees, workers and contractors have different rights and responsibilities.
If the amount you have been paid differs from what is expected, speak with your employer first to check what has happened. Your employer can then either correct the mistake or explain why there is a change in your pay.
