Friday Podcast: flexible working, Christmas redundancies, and tribunals for line managers

HR news and analysis including:

  • as the consultation on whether to extend the right to request flexible working to parents with kids aged 16 or under closes, employers’ groups have called for clarity on what exactly will change
  • a legal expert tells employers that if they have to make redundancies, they should do so Christmas Eve rather than next year, and
  • Orange HR chief Helen Chamberlain tells Personnel Today that line managers should attend employment tribunals involving their staff to understand why disputes erupt in the first place.

Presenter Louisa Peacock is joined by Guy Logan and Rob Moss.
