New Flexible Work Rules

From 1 December 2018 modern awards will include new rules about requests for flexible work arrangements.

Before responding to a request from an eligible employee, an employer must first discuss the request with them to try to reach an agreement about a change to their working arrangements. 

Requests can only be refused on reasonable business grounds and if a request is refused the employer must provide the employee with a written response.
