Flexible working appeal letter

About this service

Use this document to appeal against your employer's decision to refuse your application to change your working pattern. It can be used only if, by law, you had a legal right to apply to work flexibly. If you work in Northern Ireland, you have a legal right to make written appeal which must be made within 14 days of receiving your employer's refusal. In England, Wales or Scotland, your employer must comply with to the Acas 'Code of practice for handling requests to work flexibility in a reasonable manner' and give you the opportunity to appeal. This code will be considered by employment tribunals when deciding flexible working claims. Time limits don't apply, but your appeal should be made promptly as the law states that all requests for flexible working, including an appeal, must be dealt with by your employer within 3 months from the day your application is received. This document is suitable for employees working in the UK.
