    Interesting write-up which gives the insights on the period during an employee works for an employer, and time off with pay will remain same whether he spent 6 hours or 8 hours a day. But another side, the period what we spent more in the office will do not pay by an employer and taken by an employee but gives lots of benefits to an employee in the form of learning that always takes a step ahead!

    This sounds great in principle but what about when work piles up? Will they be working at home, during their downtime? Will they come in early or stay late to catch up?
    If everyone worked the hours they are paid for this would be a great idea, but in my experience there are always those who come in early and stay late to get their work done. I am personally not paid until 8.30am but I get into my office by 7.15am each morning to get things done.
    It would be nice to think that the type of flexible working being discussed here could apply to all but reality doesn't always work that way!
