I have recently looked at applying for a family friendly working policy at my civilian job. I meet all the criteria set out in the flexible working policy but at the end it says " applicants must not be agency workers or MEMBERS OF THE ARMED FORCES" Can they actually do that? The company knew I was a member of the TA when I was employed, I have never hidden my commitment nor asked for time off for training. I have used my holidays and/or changed shifts to accomodate my training. I have the SABRE helpline number but obviously shut until monday! Any help much appreciated!
