Employment Relations (Flexible Working) Act 2023 Commentary

Áine Fanning, Managing Director of Cpl’s Talent Evolution Group

“I see this change in employees’ rights as a reflection of the modernisation we’re experiencing within the talent and employment industry. In recent years there has been an increased focus on mental health considerations, with talent searching for an improved work-life balance, and the Flexible Working Act aligns with this shift.”

“The UK government predicts that 2.2 million employees will be within scope of the entitlement following a change in regulations. It’s crucial for organisations to understand and act upon these new rulings, to ensure that they don’t suffer the consequences of brand reputational damage and financial penalties. As a talent solution provider, it’s our responsibility to guide clients and offer expert consultancy to mitigate these risks when navigating employment laws.”
