Legal Reform: Keeping the ‘Flex’ in Flexible Working Requests, Employment Law Journal

October 29, 2021

Partner Louise Skinner and associate Thomas Twitchett review the UK government’s proposals to extend the right to request flexible working in an article for Employment Law Journal. Employers should not be alarmed at the proposed changes, since they “will still be able to assess whether flexible working requests work for them and, if not, they can decline those requests on one or more business grounds,” they write. “However, they should look to embrace greater flexibility.”

This article was first published in Employment Law Journal (November 2021) and is also available on lawjournals.co.uk.
