Flexible Working?

working from home

Flexible working comes in many forms: part time; shift work; flexitime; job sharing and working from home.  And it doesn’t just apply to working mothers either:  Surveys reveal that over 80% of the UK work force either work from home or would like to.

Employers are realising that by offering flexible working arrangements they will attract a wider pool of high calibre candidates during the recruitment process as well as retaining high performing workers.

Any employee may apply for flexible working hours; however they must have 26 weeks continuous employment at the date the application is made.

As an employer, you have a statutory right to consider the request, and reply to the request within a reasonable timeframe.

The change, once agreed, must be a formal update to an employee’s terms and conditions of employment.

An employee has the right to appeal if necessary against the outcome.

You must try, within reasonable means, to reach a mutually agreeable outcome which should also suits the needs of the business.

An employee can only apply for flexible working hours once in every 12 months.

We recommend incorporating a flexible working policy into your Employee Handbook. If you do not have an Employee Handbook, contact us to find out how we can help you implement one.
