The role of gender stereotyping in the workplace has often focused on women, but here researcher Jasmine Kelland gives evidence of sometimes shocking "fatherhood forfeits" dealt out to men seeking family-friendly working conditions.
Speaking at the Lloyds Banking HQ in Edinburgh at the launch of Fathers Network Scotland's #DadUp campaign, she presents research focusing particularly on dads seeking to work part-time, finding that managers viewed such requests with suspicion and considered them deviant.
It's one of a range of often shocking attitudes recounted by Ms Kelland - Lecturer in Human Resource Management within the Plymouth Graduate School of Management - at a seminar organised by the campaigning charity Fathers Network Scotland: "How Employers Can #DadUp".
Hosted by Lloyds Banking Group at their Edinburgh HQ in June 2017, the seminar brought together employers and academics to examine the latest research and launch the #DadUp campaign with Fathers Network Scotland and Family Friendly Working Scotland.
Fathers Network Scotland, the charity behind 2016's award-winning Year of the Dad Campaign, believe that as women rightly claim equality in the workplace, fathers need inclusive services and family-friendly working that supports their essential work at home.
