What does 'flexible working' mean?
The concept of flexible working is very wide, and you could ask for a variety of different work patterns or arrangements under these new rights. These could include, for example:
- working from home;
- term-time working;
- compressed hours;
- staggered hours;
- annualised hours; and
Remember that under the statutory flexible working regime, any request you make will be treated as a request to make a permanent change to your contract terms. If this is not what you intend, you must spell out your position clearly and in writing.
