Podcast: Requesting flexible working after maternity leave
We look at flexible working requests, focusing on issues that may arise when women returning from maternity leave request a change to their working hours.
We discuss two recent employment tribunal decisions, Whiteman v CPS Interiors Ltd and Smith v Gleacher Shacklock LLP, and consider what practical steps employers can take to deal with flexible working requests in the required reasonable manner.
In addition to listening to the audio, you can download the podcast transcript.
