Employee Letter Requesting Flexible Working Plan

A good work-life balance can be hard to maintain, and especially so when you have the duty of caring for a loved one. Because of the difficulties of such a lifestyle, the law encourages employees to consider offering flexible leave to employees who are responsible for caring for certain classes of people.

If you are caring for a child under the age of 6, a child under the age of 18 who receives disability living allowance, or a vulnerable or disabled adult, you may be able to request flexible working if you have been with your employer for over 26 weeks.

You can use this form letter as the basis of a request to your employer for a flexible working plan. It’s quick and easy to download, and all you have to do is replace the red placeholder text with the relevant details. If you’re looking for the right way to request flexible working, Law on the Web makes it easy.
