New statutory arrangements will be coming into effect from April 2024, including changes to when an employee can make a request for flexible working, how many requests can be made a within a 12-month period, response times from employers to flexible working requests, a duty on employers to consult with the employee before rejecting a request, and a simplified request procedure.

The government carried out a consultation on flexible working laws in 2021, to which SLCC contributed. You can read a summary of their response here.
