The draft Acas code provides practical guidance to employers, workers, agencies, and hirers on the forthcoming statutory right to request a predictable working pattern. The law is expected to come into force this autumn. While the code is not legally binding, it will be taken into account by courts and employment tribunals when considering relevant cases.

As this is an entirely new area of regulation, Acas are particularly keen to hear as many views as possible to inform their drafting of the code and to make sure it works effectively for all its users.

Acas encourage all interested individuals and organisations to respond to this consultation, you can read and respond to the Acas draft code of practice by 26 January 2024.
