More and more businesses are adopting flexible working options, which enables a bigger freedom in the working days of employees. Some may use flexible working to make sure they can fit in health appointments, or the school run, or to manage their time better in alignment with mental health. In any case, employees have a right to request flexible working arrangements, and sometimes employers may disregard this.

Flexible working as an option for employees
Since the COVID-19 pandemic hit and businesses were forced to adopt full-time working from home policies, more and more employers are embedding “flexible working” into their workplace cultures.
However, there are instances where a flexible working request may be ignored, or rejected by your employer. If you’ve made a reasonable request and are finding yourself up against rejection for no good reason, you may be able to make a flexible working tribunal claim.
