Hoping to find some info regarding the right to a reduction in the working day for parents of children under 8 - I know this exists, and can be from 12% to 50% of the day, but I wondered if anyone knew if it can be requested from day 1 or if you have to be employed for a specific period beforehand?

Also, when a child is ill, is there a right to take time off (paid or unpaid) to care for them? I know there is a long-term right for serious illness, but wondered regarding simple illness (a day to a week). Most of my workmates leave theirs with relatives, but since our relatives are 2 1/2 hours away by plane this is not an option!

Thanks!
