Any QMUL employee can apply to work flexibly by requesting a change to their contract.
There is no automatic right to work flexibly but we do have a duty as an employer to deal with any requests in a 'reasonable' manner.
There may be sound practical and business reasons why QMUL is unable to accommodate the work pattern you have in mind, however, QMUL's Flexible Working Policy (please see below) aims to ensure that:
- any application you make is given serious consideration;
- if your application is refused, you will be given the reason why and a right of appeal.
You may apply to change your contract only once in any twelve month period.
