Flexible Working Arrangements

Published December 11, 2018 Author: Andrew Felix Rose

When an employee requests changes to certain aspects of their job to achieve a healthier work/life balance. Employees can ask for a flexible working arrangement at any time.

Flexible working arrangements may involve changes to the number of hours worked, the work schedule pattern and where the employee works. The request can also extend to changes within the workplace itself to accommodate the employee’s specific needs.

It is the employer’s legal responsibility to consider each request. However, employers can refuse a flexible working arrangement on reasonable business grounds. For example, if the arrangement is too expensive or another employee cannot change their schedule to accommodate the arrangement.
