Existing plans to introduce the right to request flexible working for all employees have been further postponed by delays to the Children and Families Bill, a news media news report on this matter has revealed.

The bill was due for Royal Assent in early April, but the House of Commons has now agreed a new target date of 21 March 2014, thus delaying the extension of the right to request flexible working to all employees. Right now, just employees with children under the age of 17 (18 if the child is disabled) or who are carers have the right to request a flexible pattern of work.

Companies that consider offering their employees flexible working options should also implement the required workforce management systems beforehand, and this is specifically where Tensor’s WinTA.NET solution could put its market-leading efficiency to very good use.

From simple determination of overtime by the number of daily hours worked, to the more complex payment of overtime hours adjusted when periodic targets are not met, WinTA.NET can supply working rules to calculate the correct result. The system contains special rules to accommodate the formal flexitime contracts worked by many public sector employees. Workers paid on an annual contract basis can receive reports stating how many contracted hours they have yet to work.

Additionally, by using a Tensor Smart Card and input device (keypad, barcode scanner etc), workers can book time against multi-tiered jobs to produce a fully costed analysis and breakdown of time spent on each job. Reports show jobs that are over budget or those approaching their budget limit. This information can also be exported to a spreadsheet.
