How to Manage Flexible Working Requests - 21 May 2021

Contents

Over the last year the Covid-19 pandemic has led to a significant change in “flexible working” arrangements within schools. That being said, current forms of flexibility, born from the pandemic, are very different from “typical” flexible working approaches.

Prior to the pandemic, flexible working uptake was slow, and it was generally considered that the overall demand for flexible working outstripped supply in the pre Covid world. However, there are now early indications that many employees will wish to continue to undertake some degree of flexible working after life returns to a new “normal”. This is likely to lead to an influx in flexible working requests and schools should see this as a perfect opportunity to review the many potential benefits that flexible working has to offer.

The Department for Education reminds us that all employers have a legal duty to protect the health, safety and welfare of their staff. This includes minimising the risk of stress-related illness. A clear flexible working policy and informed approach to handling flexible working requests can form an important part of this duty, especially when integrated with broader staff wellbeing policies.

Our training will enable schools’ managers to make informed decisions around flexible working and ensure that they are confident to deal with any future flexible working requests lawfully (within the existing statutory framework), fairly and with the educational and post Covid landscape in mind. We will also cover practical considerations that will impact on decisions made by schools and discuss how to avoid “getting it wrong” including discrimination and equality considerations.

The training will conclude with a live Q&A session for all of your flexible working queries.
