Flexible working hours problems please help in Employment and minimum wage problems Posted November 5, 2013 I wasn't getting shirty, sorry if this came across this way. I did a formal application yes and i covered all areas of what i could do and how this would not affect the business (you see it doesn't now) used the online form from directgov. They haven't formally written to me. They verbally told me what i have to do and said they were meeting me half way. However i just feel very depressed regarding this situation as they other person simply got a yes no problem to there.
