Flexible working reforms..

Posted 4/3/2024 by Yvonne Miller

Very interesting read at this years first Newsletter published by The HR Practice;


There are a considerable number of UK Employment Law updates coming in to force in 2024, the most significant, amongst them are the reforms to the Employment Relations (Flexible Working) Act 2023And with a recent survey carried out by People Management, where a whopping 72% of employees say ”flexible working is more important to them when considering a new role than a pay
rise”, now is the time for employers to take action. Under the reforms, which will become law from 6th April 2024, will be:

  • The right to request flexible working arrangements from day one;
  • The right to make two applications within a 12 month period;
  • The time an employer has to respond to an application (3 months, to 2 months); and
  • The need for employees to explain how their flexible working arrangements will impact the business; however, the stated reasons for refusing an application remain unchanged.
