Flexible working is a way of working that suits an employee’s needs, for example having flexible start and finish times, or working from home.
All employees have the legal right to request flexible working - not just parents and carers. This is known as ‘making a statutory application’. Employees must have worked for the same employer for at least 26 weeks to be eligible.
