    Handling flexible working requests during the COVID pandemic recovery

    Childcare, lockdown, furlough, working from home and now a new 'flexible furlough scheme'. There is no doubt that the coronavirus pandemic has created a 'new normal' and that new normal is manifesting itself in the employee and employer relationship. 

    With employees now proving to employers that working from home can work, and as technology advances their cause, it is anticipated that as lockdown measures are reduced we will see an increased number of flexible working requests. Samantha Mackie, solicitor in the LAW employment law team, gives an overview on the legislation that must be adhered to in managing flexible working requests and how to manage multiple requests correctly.
