Flexible Working Opportunities

Reduction of Contractual hours

There are already legal provisions that apply in this respect to staff with young children, as set out in the Employment Act of 2002. However, under a local agreement any member of staff who has completed at least twelve months service may apply for a permanent reduction of their working hours. All requests will be dealt with sympathetically, but it should be recognised that in circumstances where it will be necessary to recruit another staff member to ensure adequate service provision, the reduction may have to be substantial for example, from 37 hours to 20 hours per week.
