|Title:||Submission to the Department of Justice and Equality Public Consultation on Flexible Working||Authors:||Lafferty, Attracta; Dowling-Hetherington, Linda; Fahy, Majella; Paul, Gillian; Phillips, Dominique; Fealy, Gerard; Moloney, Breda; Duffy, Clare; Kroll, Thilo||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/12134||Date:||31-Jan-2020||Online since:||2021-04-29T12:07:00Z||Abstract:||As part of Future Jobs Ireland, Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Heather Humphreys TD, and Minister of State David Stanton TD, launched a public consultation on flexible working to inform the development of a national flexible working policy. The consultation is seeking the views of employees, employers, trade unions and the general public to help inform the future employment policy. In the face of changing demographics and an aging population, the provision of flexible work arrangements is becoming an increasingly pertinent issue for family carers who balance paid work with caregiving responsibilities for a person with a disability, chronic illness or frailty. This submission, by the CAREWELL team, aims to highlight the importance of flexible working options for these family carers.||Funding Details:||Health Research Board||Type of material:||Technical Report||Publisher:||Carewell Project||Keywords:||Flexible working policies; Family carers; Ireland||Other versions:||https://carewellproject.com/2020/02/06/submission-to-the-public-consultation-on-flexible-working/||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
