This is a letter that can be used to notify an employer of an employee's statutory request for flexible working. It can be used to request any change to working arrangements including:
If a person has worked for their employer for at least 26 weeks, is not an agency worker and has not made a request within the prior 12 months, they are eligible to make a statutory request. If they are not, they may still make a request but the employer may not consider it. This document can be used in either circumstances.
The letter can be amended to reflect any change requested and satisfies all of the requirements in the case of a statutory request.
