David Harris discusses Flexible Working with Phil Kennedy on BBC Radio

Flexible Working happens far more than ever before. This is one of the positives to come out of the COVID-19 pandemic. Will Employees have the right to work from home or work flexibly in the future?
 
David Harris, the Managing Partner of DPH Legal, discusses Flexible Working with Phil Kennedy on BBC Radio Berkshire. The changes proposed in the latest Government taskforce review include:-
  • Employees are able to make a request immediately upon gaining a new job. At the moment Employees have to wait for 6 months before they can make a request.
  • Employees have rights so they must be given the reason(s) why a request is refused.
  • The current 8 reasons that Employers can rely on to refuse a request being reviewed. The Government taskforce aims to restrict/reduce these further.
