SRA Competency B D


The emergent world of hybrid working has triggered a substantial increase in flexible working requests.

The right to flexible working is one that has evolved over time. Enshrined in the Employment Rights Act 1996, eligible employees can currently make a written request specifying the change or changes that they are seeking to their current working arrangements.

However, in addition to the procedural requirements under the Employment Rights Act, there is a very significant risk of discrimination claims where flexible working requests are mishandled.

This new virtual classroom seminar will consider the practical implications of flexible working requests in the context of a hybrid workforce. The session will help you ensure that requests are appropriately understood and considered.

What You Will Learn

This live and interactive session will cover the following:

  • The impact of hybrid working
  • The key lessons arising from several other recent decisions
  • The statutory framework that employees must follow when making flexible working requests, and which employers must abide by when responding
  • High-risk situations and in particular cases which involve potential indirect discrimination
  • The information and knowhow you need to carefully navigate these types of requests
  • Recent government proposals in respect of the default right to work from home

Recording of live sessions: Soon after the Learn Live session has taken place you will be able to go back and access the recording - should you wish to revisit the material discussed.
