MP says new flexible working rights are a 'big boost for busy parents'

15th May 2008

Dr Hywel Francis Labour MP for Aberavon welcomes the opportunity for families in Aberavon to request flexible working rights.

Today's announcement builds on the previous right to request flexible working given to parents of children up to the age of six and the parents of disabled children.

Dr Francis said,

"I am encouraging parents in Aberavon to be fully aware of their new rights to request flexible working. This right will be extended to working parents who have children up to the age of 16 and will help many families balance their work and family life much more easily. "

Dr Francis added,

"I am pleased that employers can also benefit as well from flexible working as it allows companies to get the best out of their employees."
