Updates to UK law in 2024 will allow any employee regardless of length of service to make up to two flexible working requests in any twelve-month period of employment. As an employer, it is your obligation to justify your decision should you wish to decline.
Coupled with this, many organisations are now offering flexible contacts to find highly skilled individuals for key roles that cannot work traditional shift patterns. Skills for Care have recently published guidance for employers to further emphasise the importance of flexible working and how it can boost staff morale.
