HR Solutions - Right to request flexible working

Right to request flexible working

Flexible working arrangements have become increasingly common over the last decade, largely as a response to the economy and the current employment market, but also to improve motivation, to help retain qualified and experienced staff and often to support and encourage equal opportunity and diversity initiatives.

As defined by Gov.uk, ”Flexible working is a way of working that suits an employee’s needs, for example having flexible start and finish times, or working from home.”

This article gives an overview of the statutory right to request flexible working, which was extended from its original scope (to care for children and dependants) to enable any employee with the requisite length of service to make a request.

The statutory right to make a flexible working request extends to most employees who have 26 weeks' qualifying service.
