Hello Sharon my name is***** am a solicitor and I am happy to help you today. How long have you worked for your employer for?
Have you asked your employer if they will agree to this?
How old is your granddaughter?
thanks, ***** ***** have worked there 26 weeks which you have if you have been there 6 months you have a right to request flexible working arrangements under employment law. The employer must agree to a change in your working hours unless it has a good business reason not to if you have parental responsibilities for a child in your home.
I would imagine the reason they are taking time to come back to you is that they are taking advice on it.
Hello Sharon is there anything further you would like to know? If I have answered your question I would be grateful if you would be so kind as to rate my answer. Thank you and all the best.
