• Extension of Flexible Working to All Workers

    The Government has announced that it intends to start work on extending the right to flexible working to all employees this year.

    The proposal was a Liberal Party Manifesto commitment and was included in the Coalition Agreement publiushed on 20 May this year. The Government will be consulting with business with a view to bringing the proposal before the House later this year.

    Currently only employees with 26 month’s continuous employment who have or expect to have parental responsibility of a child aged 16 or under or a disabled child under 18 who receives Disability Living Allowance or those who are carers for an adult can apply for flexible working.
