Considering the needs of employees in hybrid working
You should discuss your employee's needs, and consider how you can support them.
For example, consider:
- any reasonable adjustments
- their home working environment
- any caring responsibilities
- other flexible working needs
Avoid generalising or making assumptions.
Requests for hybrid working
If an employee asks you about hybrid working you should consider their request.
Make sure you know why they're asking – they could be making a request for a reasonable adjustment under the Equality Act.
An employee might make a written request to change some of the terms and conditions of their employment. This might be a formal flexible working request. You must respond to flexible working requests appropriately.
