The greenkeeping departments of private member golf clubs have not been hugely affected by the original flexible working legislation introduced in 2003.
The reason for that is that the demographic in those departments is predominantly male, with older children, having relatives who are not old enough to need carers, and also because males are much less likely to take on the carer role in the family.
However with the new legislation from 30 June 2014, all employees, not just carers or parents, will be able to request flexible working or, as it is commonly reflected on a daily basis, wanting to work part-time.
Our White Paper on how changes to flexible working legislation will affect greenkeepers in private member golf clubs in the UK takes you through all the things you need to now consider when dealing with flexible working requests.
