Form for employee to submit flexible working request (preliminary draft reflecting forthcoming reforms)

Authors: Stephen Simpson and Zeba Sayed

When to use this model form

Use this model form to permit employees to submit a formal request for flexible working when forthcoming reforms to the right to request flexible working take effect - see below for a breakdown of the expected changes. See Form for submitting a flexible working request for a form that reflects the current law.


This version of the form is a preliminary draft reflecting reforms that will be introduced by:

Although the Act has received Royal Assent, the Government needs to introduce secondary legislation in the form of regulations for the amended rights in the Act to be fully operational. It is not yet known what these regulations will say or when they will come into force. In addition, the proposed changes to the Acas code need to go through Parliament. Therefore, further revisions to this form may be necessary.
