Agree to a flexible working request without holding a meeting to discuss it
- If an employer is able to agree to a request for flexible working, there is no need for it to arrange a meeting with the employee to discuss the request.
- The statutory flexible working procedure sets out the time limit for the employer to notify the employee of its decision.
- The notification should specify the flexible working arrangement agreed and when it will take effect.
- The employer should obtain the employee's written agreement to the contractual change.
