Workplace Flexibility Options

Workplace Flexibility Options

(p.95) 5 Workplace Flexibility Options
Mothers Unite!

Jocelyn Elise Crowley

Cornell University Press

This chapter explains workplace flexibility as a unifying concept for bringing all mothers together. Exploring across groups and the work-for-pay/stay-at-home dichotomy, it addresses the question of whether or not mothers tend to support various workplace flexibility initiatives. It also examines the levels of support that exist for governmental policies promoting workplace flexibility—ranging from educating firms about the benefits of such options, to tax breaks for companies that offer such plans, to mandatory requirements that organizations offer employees processes through which they can receive such arrangements. In doing so, the chapter offers possible parameters for policy makers as they develop reforms to generate the widest levels of public support.

Keywords:   workplace flexibility, work-for-pay mothers, stay-at-home mothers, governmental policies, tax breaks, public support
