Up to Speed on Flexible Working Arrangements for your staff?
Flexible working arrangements
Certain employees have the right to request flexible working arrangements. Employers can only refuse these requests on reasonable business grounds.
What are flexible working arrangements?
Examples of flexible working arrangements include changes to:
· hours of work (eg. changes to start and finish times)
· patterns of work (eg. split shifts or job sharing)
· locations of work (eg. working from home).
Who can request flexible working arrangements?
Employees who have worked with the same employer for at least 12 months can request flexible working arrangements if they:
· are the parent, or have responsibility for the care, of a child who is school aged or younger
· are a carer (under the Carer Recognition Act 2010)
· have a disability
· are 55 or older
· are experiencing family or domestic violence, or
· provide care or support to a member of their household or immediate family who requires care and support because of family or domestic violence.
