Flexible working

Flexible working arrangements can be used to change when, where or how an employee works.

Important: From 6 April 2024, employees will be able to request flexible working from the first day of a job. We expect other changes to be confirmed for 6 April too.

There will be a new Acas Code of Practice and we'll publish new advice on 6 April. Before then you can:

  • follow our current advice
  • use our current templates
  • get help to prepare your organisation
