Who would think that experience and knowledge of a situation would be useful in a discussion, when, like you, people can just use non-sequiturs and irrelevant comments.
Personally I think a HR off is always relevant

Six years ago, and we were serving 3,000 staff.

Before the bureaucratic legislation requiring us to introduce a procedure, if a member of staff wanted to request a change, they simply asked us or their manager, and if it was agreed, we would issue a letter confirming the arrangement.

But then in came legislation which basically required us to write a policy and have the employee put the request in writing, and management had to respond in writing within 7 days I think it was, and only then did we issue the variation to contract letter.

What a palaver for such a straight forward request.

Heaven help us if they decide a procedure is needed to request time off to go to the loo.

Yes, because those two things are so similar…

Re: Staff to gain right to request flexible working from first day

May I remind everyone this is about starting a NEW job with a NEW employer..not requests of an existing employer for an existing old job..
