This policy has been updated to comply with the new Flexible Working Regulations and Part 9 of the Children and Families Act 2014 which come into force on 30th June 2014.

This Flexible Working Policy details employees' statutory rights to apply for flexible working and the duty on employers to consider an application. Use of this policy by an employer will help to protect against claims, including claims for sex discrimination.

Examples of flexible working include, change in working hours, working from home, staggered working hours, flexi-time, time off in lieu, job sharing, shift working / shift swapping, school term time working, voluntary reduced working time and self-rostering.

The clauses in this policy include:

  • Qualification for right to apply.
  • Timetable for considering an application.
  • Appeal procedure if application refused.

Under the Employment Act 2002 employees with 26 or more weeks of continuous employment (at the date of making their application) have the right to request flexible working hours.

An employer has a statutory duty to seriously consider any such request. For this reason it is an advantage to have a clear Flexible Working Policy in place.
