Your employer should have a policy detailing how a request should be made and how it will be handled.

An application must:

  • Be in writing, dated and provide an explanation of the changes that you are seeking.
  • Detail what effect you think the proposed changes may have on your employer, and how you feel any such effect might be dealt with.
  • State that you are making a statutory request and give details of any previous application for flexible working including the date of that application.

Your employer has to consider your application in a timely manner and provide you with their decision. If your employer rejects your request, it must be for a specific business reason. You will be entitled to appeal the decision.

If you feel that the decision to refuse your application is not sufficiently justified or discriminatory, we are able to provide an initial assessment for a fixed fee.
