How old is your granddaughter?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
She was 5 in September and has been wirh me since the end of June
Expert:  Jenny replied 4 months ago.

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.
