As you may be aware, there are some big changes to Flexible Working Arrangements on 6th April 2024.
A brief outline of the changes:
Any employee may apply for flexible working hours from the first day of employment.
As an employer, you have a statutory right to consider the request, and reply to the request within a 2 month period.
An employee can now apply for flexible working hours twice in every 12 months.
Dealing with Flexible Working requests is an important part of being a manager so it is imperative that this change is understood.
We recommend incorporating the update into your Employee Handbook. If you do not have an Employee Handbook, contacting us today to find out how we can help you implement one.
