Flexible Working Rights Extended

 30th Jun 2014

From today, all employees with 26 weeks’ service have the right to make a “flexible working” request, ie a request to change their hours/pattern of work.  Previously, this only applied to parents or carers.

In effect, this is a right to request, not a right to get.  Employers must deal with the request reasonably and respond within 3 months.  Requests can be refused for business reasons (eg cost).  Only one request can be made per 12 month period.
