[UK] NEW CODE OF PRACTICE ON FLEXIBLE WORKING [16 May 2014]
Employees in the UK who have worked for their employer for 26 weeks or more will soon have the right to ask for flexible working conditions. Legislation that changes the rules on flexible working is currently in its final parliamentary stages. It obliges employers to consider requests for flexible working in a ‘reasonable manner’. Ahead of the changes, the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service has published a draft code of practice and broader good practice guidance.
