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.
Redditch is a town, and local government district in north-east Worcestershire, England, approximately 15 miles (24 km) south of Birmingham. The district has a population of 85,000 as of 2019. In the 19th century it became the international centre for the needle and fishing tackle industry. At one point 90% of the world's needles were manufactured in the town and its neighbourhoods. In the 1960s it became a model for modern new town planning.
