Note: Flexible Working 2014: How employers have changed their flexible working policy in response to the extension of the right to request flexible working to all employees. From 30 June 2014, the Children and Families Act 2014 extended the right to request flexible working to all employees. This right previously applied to employees with children under the age of 17 (18 if a child was disabled) or who were carers. This XpertHR survey was conducted in May 2014.
