The CSP has responded to a government consultation on flexible working arrangements in England, Scotland and Wales.
The proposals include making the right to request flexible working a ‘day one’ employment right. The CSP supports this measure, as it would expand opportunities for flexible working for members working in the private sector.
However, in other areas the consultation did not go far enough to support employees to secure alternative working arrangements.
The CSP continues to raise awareness of the benefits of flexible working for staff, employers and patients alike. See our building a better balance resource for more information.
