Flexible Working

Flexible working policy concept. Piece of paper on table.

Flexible working is a way of working that suits an employee’s needs, e.g., being able to work certain hours or work from home.

Anyone can ask their employer to work flexibly – and many organizations have now embraced both home and flexible working as part of accommodating a diverse workforce.

Employees with disabilities or who have caring responsibilities (for a child or adult) have the legal right to ask for flexible working and, in these cases in particular, it is important to give due consideration to this request.

Here is some useful information on part-time working in Europe and also the EU directive on flexible working for parents and carers.
