All employees have the legal right to request flexible working

The law on flexible working

As an employer, you need to know about flexible working. Since 30 June 2014, almost all employees with at least 26 weeks’ service have had the right to ask for flexible working. You must consider requests in a reasonable manner. You can only refuse a request for one of the eight business reasons allowed by the legislation.

What is flexible working?

Flexible working is any working pattern other than the normal working pattern — it can involve changes to the hours an employee works, the times they are required to work or their place of work.
