Flexible Working Requests with YouManage

Recent times have created new challenges for employees and businesses none more so that being able to work more flexibly.

Flexible working requests are where an employee’s asks to change their working patterns such as working reduced hours, different start and end times, or perhaps a change to the place or work, e.g. working from home.

Every employee has the right to request to work flexibly, if they have been in service for at least 26 weeks and only one request in each 12 month’s period must be considered.

However, each request does not need to be granted, but any that are rejected must be given a sound business reason and each request must be considered in a reasonable timeframe, i.e. 3 months.
