Flexible working is a way of working that suits an employee's needs. It might mean having flexible start and finish times, or working from home. All employees have the legal right to request flexible working - not just parents and carers. Employees must have worked for the same employer for at least 26 weeks to be eligible. To apply for flexible working, employees simply need to email or write a letter to their employer. You can download a letter template here.
