Flexible working is simply requesting to work a different pattern to that stated on the employee's terms and conditions of employment. Any employee with 26 weeks of service with the same employer has the right to make a request to work flexibly.

Examples of kinds of flexible working that can be requested include:

  • reducing hours to work part-time
  • changing start and finish times
  • having flexibility with start and finish time (sometimes known as ‘flexitime’)
  • working hours over fewer days (‘compressed hours’)
  • working from home or elsewhere (‘remote working’)
  • sharing the job with someone else (‘job share’)
