    Good luck! What arrangement have you requested i.e two days, three days?

    If they do refuse make sure they put it properly in writing. And make sure HR are involved as well as your manager. Often they don't know about things until it is too late and then have to clean up the mess (I am talking from experience!). Better to involve them from the start as they are more aware of the legal obligations relating to both EEO and FWA.

    I actually said I'd be flexible with however many days fitted in with them, but suggested 2-3 days per week.

    Hi! Yes in one respect. Unfortunately I had to resign. I had several meetings with HR/my boss, where I put many suggestions to them. They basically said it wouldn't work as they ned continuity and the same person 5 days a week. They couldn't find me another role (don't think they tried very hard IMO) either.

    I did take it up with Fair Work AUstralia, and also got some informal legal advice from a lawyer I know. I didn't seem to have a case so there wasn't anything to do but resign

    I'm a bit jaded by it. They are a large company that puts across a family-oriented image! But oh well, I'm over it now.

    Thanks for checking in with me
