Flexible working for all employees!

Employees now have a legal right to ask their bosses to work flexibly regardless of whether they’re parents or not. The only requirement is that the employee must have worked with their employer for at least 26 weeks.

If so, they can then make one ‘flexibility request’ per year and the employer has a legal duty to consider it.

Previously, the law stated that only parents of children under 16 or those registered as carers were allowed to request flexible working.
