Submission to the Public Consultation on Flexible Working

As part of Future Jobs Ireland, Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Heather Humphreys TD, and Minister of State David Stanton TD, launched a Public Consultation on Flexible Working to inform the development of a national flexible working policy. The consultation, which concluded in January 2020, sought the views of employees, employers, trade unions and the general public.

The CAREWELL team made a written submission to the public consultation based on the needs of those who are balancing paid employment with the care of someone with a disability, chronic illness or frailty. The team is supportive of the introduction of a policy on flexible working, which would enable family carers in particular to balance work commitments with caregiving responsibilities of a dependent relative at home. You can read the CAREWELL team’s full submission below.
