Flexible working is a way of working that suits an employee’s needs, for example having flexible start and finish times, or working from home.
Flexible working rules are different in Northern Ireland.
All employees have the legal right to request flexible working - not just parents and carers.
This is known as ‘making a statutory application’.
Employees must have worked for the same employer for at least 26 weeks to be eligible.
