Part-timers to get full-time help - 15-02-2005
Acas Chief Executive John Taylor has welcomed a report on the difficulties faced by part-time workers - published by the EOC - and has pledged Acas' full help and support to help employers to extend flexible working within the UK labour force.

In recent years a number of pressures have forced employers to examine the way they operate and attempt to make working practices more flexible. These pressures include: intensive international competition, the increasing pace of technological change and the need to exploit new opportunities.

John Taylor has highlighted the many advantages to employing part-time workers, which include having

  • higher productivity and lower absence rates than full-timers

  • they can provide cover for busy periods or to extend the running of expensive capital equipment without adding full-time shifts or incurring overtime payments.

      He also announced that in the next two weeks Acas will be launching a new e-learning package 'Working Parents' which gives all the facts from maternity and paternity leave through to the right for working parents to request flexible working outlined in the recent DTI legislation.
