The Employment Relations (Flexible Working) Bill receives royal assent

The Employment Relations (Flexible Working) Bill received royal assent yesterday (20 July 2023), meaning it becomes the Employment Relations (Flexible Working) Act 2023 (the Act).

When the Act comes into force it will bring the following changes to the current statutory flexible working regime:

  • employees will be able to make two flexible working requests within a 12 month period (currently they are limited to making one);
  • employers will need to make a decision in relation to a flexible working request within two months of the request being made (currently this is within 3 months)...
