Flexible Working Hours

By Nancy Prest
23rd July 2014

As of the 30th June 2014 any employee has the legal right to request Flexible Working Hours if  they have worked for their employer for 26 weeks or more.

Key Points:

  • Requests should be in writing stating the date of the request and whether any previous application has been made and the date of that application
  • Requests and appeals must be considered and decided upon within three months of the receipt of the request
  • Employers must have a sound business reason for rejecting any request
  • Employees can only make one request in any 12 month period

All of the above are Statutory requirements.
