I’m uncomfortable with the thought that I may be pressured by my staff to utilize Flexible Work options. How can I put this in perspective?
As a supervisor, you are the ultimate arbiter of whether a Flexible Work option is appropriate for your staff. It is important that you fairly and consistently consider each employee’s request, but you are not obligated to approve every proposal. Flexible Work policies, procedures, and agreements provide guidelines that must be taken into account when making Flexible Work decisions. The Resources section of this site includes useful information to help you manage Flexible Work employees to successfully meet your department’s goals and obligations.
