ABSTRACT
The article deals with the concern of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) of Great Britain on the announcement that the government may delay family-friendly legislation because of economic conditions. According to CIPD chief executive Jackie Orme, the proposed move was spectacularly ill-timed for working parents and risked doing more harm than good for competitiveness. She added that the existing right to request flexible working is a model example of light-touch regulation.
