Flexible Working Claims Stoke
All statutory flexible working requests must be seriously considered with the aim of deciding whether your business can provide the requested work pattern. You should hold a meeting with the employee to discuss their request. If you cannot provide the requested working pattern, you may still wish to explore alternatives to find a working pattern suitable to you both.
Certain employees have the statutory right to make a flexible working request. To be eligible a person must:
- Be an employee
- Have worked for you continuously for at least 26 weeks on the date they make their request
- Not have made another statutory request during the past 12 months
The employee can only make an application to care for either:
- A child under 17
- A disabled child who is under 18, and who is in receipt of disability living allowance
- Certain adults who require care
- Under the statutory arrangements, applications cannot be made for any other reason.
- Parents who can make flexible working requests
A parent can request flexible working if they are either:
- the mother, father, adopter, guardian, special guardian, foster parent or private foster carer of the child or a person who has been granted a residence order in respect of a child
- married to, or the partner or civil partner of, the child’s mother, father, adopter, guardian, special guardian, foster parent or private foster carer or person who has been granted a residence order in respect of a child
A carer can request flexible working if they care, or expect to be caring, for either:
- A spouse, partner, civil partner or relative
- Someone who lives at the carer’s address
A relative is a mother, father, adopter, adoptee, guardian, special guardian, parent-in-law, son, son-in-law, daughter, daughter-in-law, brother, brother-in-law, sister, sister-in-law, uncle, aunt or grandparent. Step-relatives, adoptive relationships and half-blood relatives are also included. The frequency of flexible working requests Employees can make one application every 12 months – even if the second request in this period was for a different caring responsibility. For example, an employee wishing to make a request to care for an adult would still have to wait a year even if their previous request had been to enable them to care for a child. A year runs from the date the first application was made. Before making a subsequent request, the employee must still meet the eligibility criteria.
Eligible employees can make a request to:
- Change the hours they work
- change the times when they are required to work
- work from another location of the business or from home (whether for all or part of the week)
You should acknowledge receipt of the employee’s flexible working request in writing. All statutory flexible working requests must be seriously considered with the aim of deciding whether your business can accommodate the requested work pattern. Under the statutory procedure, you should hold a meeting with the employee to discuss their request. If you cannot accommodate the requested working pattern, you may still wish to explore alternatives to find a working pattern suitable to you both. You can also agree to a flexible working request simply on the basis of the application itself without the need for a meeting.

Insurance will cover you against the other side’s costs and expenses. If you win your no win no fee claim, you should receive your compensation free of any deductions, as your solicitor’s costs should be paid by the other side.
