Flexible working policy (long form)
A policy explaining employees' rights to make flexible working requests, incorporating the statutory scheme and a more informal procedure.
The flexible working legislation is expected to change on 30 June 2014 (see Drafting note, Legal issues). To make this policy compliant with the anticipated changes (subject to the final wording of the legislation) delete paragraphs 4.1(c), 5, and 6.3(b). A more comprehensive review will be done to pick up any other drafting points when the final version of the legislation is available.
