Half of working mothers have had their employer reject, or only partially accept, a flexible working request, while those who do work flexibly face discrimination and disadvantage as a result, according to new polling.

The findings, which follow a TUC and Mother Pukka survey of almost 13,000 UK mothers working across the public and private sectors, suggest the legal right to request flexible working is no longer fit for purpose.
