Flexible Working Requests
All employees can now apply to work flexibly
From requests for compressed hours, to proposals to job share or work from home, employers need to navigate all manner of applications and be seen to carefully consider requests with an open mind. While your business may have the infrastructure and ability to accommodate different working styles, for others this will simply not be viable.
We can help you review requests, guide you through the necessary legal process, and help you deliver the outcome. Whether it is to grant the application, offer a compromise/trial period or decline a request on one of the many available business grounds, we will support you to assess the benefits, risks and sensitivities, and prepare the necessary paperwork.
Where there is a litigation risk, and the chance of a claim for discrimination or constructive dismissal, we will work to reduce those risks and put measures in place to put clients in a position of strength.
