The United Kingdom’s new Flexible Working Regulations 2014 are now in effect.
As of June 30, 2014, the regulations introduce a number of significant changes, including the following:
It is important to note, however, that employers can still refuse a request on one of the eight statutory grounds which are unchanged and include the (broad) “burden of additional costs” and “detrimental impact on quality” grounds.
Although these changes may sound alarming to employers, it should be remembered that it is a “right to make a request for flexible working” and not a “right to flexible working.” It will be interesting to see what impact these changes have in practice but, in the meantime, we recommend that employers review their existing flexible working policies.
