This chapter is devoted to part-time work and in particular to its role in advancing gender equality and reconciling work and family life. It first addresses the role of the sex discrimination regime with respect to both improving the terms and conditions of part-time workers and expanding opportunities to work on a part-time basis. It then examines the twin statutory measures that have been introduced to directly regulate part-time work: the Part-time Workers (Prevention of Less Favourable Treatment) Regulations 2000 and the ‘flexible working’ regime, through which workers can request to work on a part-time basis. It is argued that both these measures are constrained by their procedural facets, which limit the ability of workers to claim the rights they embody.

Keywords:   work and family, sex discrimination, Part-Time Workers (Prevention of Less Favourable Treatment) Regulations 2000, flexible working
