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. Where a person is an agency worker, they may only make a statutory request if they have recently returned from a period of parental leave. However, where an agency worker has not returned from parental leave, they may still use this document to request flexible working. This document can be used by employees or agency workers in either set of circumstances.
The letter can be amended to reflect any change requested and satisfies all of the requirements in the case of a statutory request.
How this letter should be used
This letter should be signed and sent to the employer. In most circumstances it should be addressed to the employee's manager or a representative of HR.
