Danielle Ayres, Senior Associate in Employment Law and specialist in Maternity Discrimination, appeared on the BBC’s Sunday Morning Live show speaking on the topic of equality in the workplace. Discussion for the segment was centred around issues facing employers and employees regarding equal pay and flexible working.
Danielle called for greater support to educate employers on the rules and regulations surround equal pay to prevent them from breaching the equal pay act 2010.
On the topic of flexible working, Danielle said that although flexible working wasn’t workable for all employers and employees, it’s important that employers give proper consideration when flexible working requests are made, including a sensible and informed discussion between the parties to see whether or not there is a workable solution for both.
