Employment Update: Flexible working requests

The UK Government has published its response to a consultation on proposals to amend the right to request flexible working.  In this note (accessible below), we summarise the key changes and potential timings for when those changes will be in force.

In summary, employee-friendly changes to the right to request flexible working are expected to be in force sometime during 2023.

In practice, given the move to increased flexible working during the pandemic (and the need to attract talent at a time when vacancies in many industries are high), many employers will already be complying with these new proposals.

As a matter of good practice, employers should check and review internal policies and processes dealing with flexible working requests to align with these new proposals (and offer training to managers and HR teams on any updates needed).
