Could flexible working become the default position?

A new consultation will be launched by the government to decide whether flexible working should become the default position. The idea, which has been referred to in the Employment Bill proposal, was also first mentioned in the Conservative Party’s 2019 election manifesto. A government advisory group has recently recommended that this should be the case, however, it has been clarified that it will not go as far as providing staff with a legal right to work remotely from home.
