Flexible working

The Employment Relations (Flexible Working) Bill, had its second reading in the House of Commons on 28 October 2022.

If the Bill becomes law, it will amend section 80F, ERA, by introducing the requirement for employers to consult with employees before rejecting their flexible working request; and remove the requirement for employees to explain the impact on the organisation of their flexible working.

It will also increase the number of permitted requests in a 12-month-period from one to two.

The time period for employers to make their decision about the flexible working request would reduce from three months to two months.
