Flexible working and the right to request
What is flexible working? What’s good about it? What’s bad about it? How do you implement flexible working practices?
With flexible working requests potentially becoming a day-one right, it’s important for employers to understand how to handle flexible working requests, the grounds for refusal and how to write a flexible working policy.
During National Work-Life Week 2021, our Employment Law & HR expert Lynda Arrowsmith, talks through how flexible working affects productivity, retention, recruitment and wellbeing. Lynda also answers audience questions in a Q&A at the end of the webinar.
