Bitesized Guide to Flexible Working

(Recorded November 2021)

A short guide to flexible working, including:

  • What flexible working actually is - what kind of changes to your working hours or patterns could you ask for?
  • How to make a request, including what your rights are and what to include
  • What to expect from your employer, including their responsibilities under the law

The information in this video is correct at time of recording, to the best of our knowledge. The webinar refers to rules and legislation on flexible working rights, which are subject to change, for example we are aware at time of recording that there are proposals to make flexible working a 'day one' right. Find further information and check the current legislation at www.gov.uk
