Day one right to flexible working under new government plans
The government is removing the 26-week qualifying period before an employee can request flexible working. It will be a day-one right for new employment.
This change in legislation will give employees a better work-life balance, even more so for those with personal commitments such as children or carers of vulnerable people.
This will mean millions of employees will be able to request flexibility in their employment. It includes not only hybrid working but also job-sharing, flexitime and working compressed, annualised or staggered hours.
We will be explaining what the new legislation will mean for employers, how it will affect your company and provide some tips on what to do next.
