  • Meeting

    A discussion should take place between the employee and the employer to discuss the flexible working request as soon as possible after the date on which the request has been made. (It would be prudent to keep a written record of this meeting.)

    The meeting should provide an opportunity for the employer and the employee to examine the flexible working arrangement requested by the employee and discuss how the employer may accommodate the arrangement.
