ABSTRACT
The article reports on the request for homeworking generated by the flexible work provisions found in the Employment Rights Act 1996 in Great Britain. The grounds for the request may be childcare or eldercare, but unless there is also a request for part-time work or the employee's hours are adjusted, a switch to homeworking is a change in the place of work. Under the legislation, employers have to follow a procedure with a strict time schedule when dealing with requests for flexible working.
