ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Advocate General to the European Court of Justice (ECJ) has signalled that Great Britain's estimated six care givers should be protected from workplace discrimination. It also reports that those with 26 weeks' service have been able to request flexible working since April 6, 2007. The latest legal opinion indicates employers must now also make sure care givers don't suffer direct discrimination or harassment at work because of their association with disabled people.
