Why is it important to have a Flexible Working Policy and Procedure?
In June 2014, the laws governing flexible working changed. Now, all employees with a minimum of 26 weeks service have the right to apply for and request, flexible working hours. This means it is critical that you have in place a Flexible Working Policy and Procedure that helps you manage the process compliantly, consistently and fairly.
Our Flexible Working Policy and Procedure is designed to help ensure employers are compliant with their employment law obligations.
Our Flexible Working Policy and Procedure is up to date with all new legislation and is easy to follow to ensure that you handle any request for flexible work in a sensible and reasonable manner.
Areas covered in the policy include:
- Purpose and Scope
- The meeting with you to discuss your application, and the decision
- Extension of time limits
- Withdrawal of an application
