I wondered if anyone has come across this in their organisation and if so what the outcome was.
We have been asked on several occasions by employees whether we will pay their childcare costs in instances where they are working outside their contracted hours.
An example of this would be a part time employee being asked to work extra hours for a week on a project meaning they would have to arrange and pay for additional childcare. Or a full timer who is asked to go abroad for work meaning they have to get some additional childcare as they will not be at home.
Does anyone have an employer that does cover these costs?
