A gender issue. In the feature “It cuts both ways” (LIJ March 2018), Calum Cook makes the incredible statement that issues regarding employees’ hours of work, and particularly an employer’s ability to change those hours, are “often skewed towards the employee’s needs and fulfilment”. Accommodation of an employee’s family and other commitments is, in fact, a recent development in Australia, and is (as the article demonstrates) often opposed on grounds of managerial prerogative. The real issue, as Mr Cook mentions almost at the end of the article, is one of discrimination and reasonable accommodation of employees’ family and carer responsibilities.
