Flexible Working Rights

Sheffield Employment solicitors are specialists in helping employers to understand and respond to flexible working requests in the correct and lawful manner.

Flexible working is a way of working which suits an employee's needs. The laws governing flexible working rights were changed in 2014.

Any employee who has been employed for more than 26 weeks has the legal right to request flexible working. This applies to all employees, not just parents and carers.

Employers are obliged to follow the proper procedures and deal with requests for flexible working in a reasonable manner within carefully defined periods. 

We can assist you with understanding and implementing the new complex Regulations.
