Here is a quick question:
We have been asked a question from a Dad who has just taken over full-time care of his son. His son is still at school.
This Dad starts work at 7.00am and of course was late for work this morning because he had to drop his son off at school.
The school’s breakfast club doesn’t start early enough and this Dad does not know what his employment rights are. He spoke to HR this morning – or rather they spoke to him! They advise him that he has to get permission to be late from his line manager.
His fear is that his line-manager (who in truth needs him to start at his usual time) will say “no”.
Can anyone think of a solution for him?
