The sudden and dramatic spread of COVID-19 earlier this year prompted employers from every corner of the UK to act quickly to get their workforce set up to work remotely from their own homes.  The current guidance, seven months later, is back to working from home where possible.  Whilst some employees will be eager to get back into the office environment, others will have realised that working from home suits them more than traditional fixed hours’ office working.

Here we explore flexible working requests (FWRs), the effect of the coronavirus outbreak on flexible working and how different companies have reacted.  It also looks to the future to perhaps a new way of flexible working as outlined in the Employment Bill.
