I started working for my company last year and asked to work from home one day. I was allowed for three months only, but since then have heard of other staff having flexible arrangements. The company’s handbook says it will not allow flexible working at this time. Is that allowed?
I have been on maternity leave for 6 months and want to return. I would like to remain in the same role as a sales manager, but reduce my hours from 9.00-5.15 to 9.00-3.00 (but with no lunch) so I only miss out on 1 hour. My work is not happy about this. They have found me a sales role, which means a pay drop and with reduced hours this would make my life financially difficult.

I am a single parent on maternity leave and due to go back at the start of June 2008. I am contracted to a variable work pattern 5 days a week and 1 out of 3 saturdays. I am on approximately £13,000 a year full time and have no funding or contact with the father so no help with childcare. I need to change onto a fixed contract but can't afford full-time nursery care and need to work nursery compatible hours. I have been offered evening hours - impossible for me - and told there are limited morning shifts, but have not replied formally to my request. What are my options?
