Flexible and Hybrid Working

Specialist legal advice on flexible and hybrid working for employees

In today’s post-pandemic era, achieving a work-life balance is increasingly important for many employees. However, the legal position is not always clear cut.

If you have concerns about the way that your employer has addressed your request for a more flexible working pattern, our specialist employment solicitors can advise you and help you find an appropriate resolution. 

Flexible working could be anything from part-time working, condensed hours and term-time working to amended start and finish times. Hybrid working is one form of flexible working where work can be carried out at different locations, usually from home.

Any employee who has worked for their employer for 26 weeks continuously can formally ask for a flexible working pattern. Requests are not always granted but they must be handled fairly.

The legal situation in the case of hybrid working can be more complex, particularly as some employers seek to row back from measures introduced out of necessity during the pandemic.

If you are considering a more flexible working pattern or believe you have been treated unfairly with regard to a request, we can offer expert guidance tailored to your specific circumstances.

Our employment lawyers will advise you on the interpretation of your employer’s policies, if any exist, and help you navigate the most effective approach to presenting your individual case.

If you would like to discuss your situation further, please contact a member of our employment team in St Albans, Harpenden or Luton.
