Your employer can treat your application for flexible working as withdrawn if you:
- have told the employer verbally or in writing that you are withdrawing the application;
- have failed without reasonable cause to attend a meeting or an appeal meeting more than once; or
- refuse without reasonable cause to give information that the employer needs to assess whether your request should be agreed to.
You should bear in mind that if you withdraw your application, you will not be entitled to make another request for flexible working under the statutory scheme for 12 months from the date of your original application.
