Our solicitors help many employees secure flexible working conditions, by advising them of their rights or by intervening on their behalf to settle a dispute with their employer over flexible working requests.
Parents and carers often struggle to meet the competing demands of work and care for their dependants. Flexible working can help achieve a better work life balance. There are many different ways of working flexibly which include remote working, reduced hours or job sharing. From July 2014, the right to request flexible working will be extended to all employees who have been with their employer for 26 weeks and are looking for a work-life balance.
In the first instance we can advise on how to make a request for flexible working. If your employer has refused your request without good reason, this could entitle you to bring a claim against your employer.
We can assess if your employer has acted unlawfully, and if this is the case, we can take steps to encourage them to change their decision or seek compensation. Our highly experienced solicitors will take the time to understand your circumstances, and advise on the most suitable and cost-effective course of action.
