I work full-time having started this job approx. 6 mths ago. I work in a small team of 4 but there is a woman who I work with who has a volatile nature. Never quite sure when she is going to 'flare up'. Her experience keeps her employed there, but I think it is causing me underlying stress coupled with the nature of the job which is stressful to me (maybe not to others as we all experience stress at different levels). Anyway, I want to change to part-time hours as I think it will be better for me and my health. Is it reasonable for me to ask for part-time hours, like a job-share where I work mornings? Has anyone experience this kind of situation before?
