Flexible Working
Those caring for young children (under the age of 6 - or 18 if disabled) or elderly relatives now have a statutory right to request flexible working arrangements. Employers have a duty to consider the request to see if they can accommodate the proposed working arrangements. This might include altered hours, part-time or term-time working only, job sharing arrangements or perhaps working from another location.

There is a timetable for the consideration and decision process which must be followed. If faced with such a request, employers should take advice to make sure that they deal with it legally.

Whilst initial proposals may be inconvenient, it is worthwhile trying to come to an arrangement that will suit both parties to allow employers to retain valuable employees, reduce the level of absence and stress and potentially increase the loyalty and commitment of their staff.
