HR policies should accommodate all: TODAY

I applaud the need for a non-discriminatory human resources (HR) policy, as reported in "Are employers asking too much?" (April 11).

I feel stereotyping is common when employers make certain assumptions in hiring, such as:

• Singles can work longer hours more often and require shorter notice for last-minute deadlines.

• There should be no change in working hours for fathers as mothers are the primary caregiver to children.

• Mothers take leave often, especially so for those with elderly parents. It would be tough for companies to delegate important responsibilities to mothers due to their unavail- ability.

It is high time our HR policies encourage the understanding that individuals need time for themselves.

This personal time helps to foster stronger family ties, create new relationships and opportunities for self-enrichment or community activities.

Regardless of your marital status, aren't you entitled to time for yourself without worrying that you would be passed over for promotion for not being "accommodating"?
