Starting 6-30-14, All UK Employees Have the Right to Request Flexible working – GOV.UK
Monday, June 30th, 2014
From 30 June 2014, all employees have the legal right to request flexible working – not just parents and carers.
Kate Lister’s insight:
This is becoming a big trend both in and outside government. Just last week, President Obama announced a similar right for US federal employees (http://1.usa.gov/1qrPOPO).
Employers are finally waking up to the fact that flexibility is essential to the sustainability of their workforce.
