Commenting on a new Flexible Working Bill that was presented in the House of Commons last week, TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said: “As we emerge from the pandemic, lots of workers will want to work more flexibly to help them do their job and manage their other responsibilities too.
“Flexible working isn’t just about working at home. It can mean having predictable or fixed hours, working as a job-share, or working flexitime, term-time only hours or compressed hours.
“No one should miss out on flexible working options. Government must bring in a new right to flexible working for every worker, in every job.”
The Flexible Working Bill is a Private Members’ Bill that would give all workers a right to flexible working from the first day in a job and ensure that employers advertise flexibility in job adverts.
