Nothing to do with giving absent fathers access rights to their kids, more the growing clamour for men to have equal rights to paternity leave.
Last year the government introduced new legislation called the Right to Request, giving fathers the right to two weeks' leave, with paternity pay of£100 per week.
'The legislation has been useful in terms of encouraging parents and employers to think about flexible working,' she says. 'But too many employers clearly fail to understand the benefits of flexibility and feel free to flout its requirements,' she says.
She says many fathers were told they would face demotion to less responsible jobs as a result of taking leave, and some were accused of 'not being team players'. The charity's research shows that 40% of those who requested leave were denied it.
The charity is recommending that there should be an automatic right to flexible hours, rather than just the
right to request them. It also believes the link between childcare costs and parents' ability to work flexibly should be addressed.
