The Fair Work Information Statement (FWIS) is published by the Fair Work Ombudsman in accordance with s124 of the Fair Work Act 2009.

The Fair Work Ombudsman has revised the FWIS and employers should be providing the most up to date FWIS to relevant employees.

The revised statement incorporates the current legal rights and obligations of employers and employees and reflects currently relevant amounts (eg the high income threshold of $129,300).

Here is an extract relating to the right to request flexible working arrangements:
‘Requests for flexible working arrangements form part of the NES. You may request a change in your working arrangements, including changes in hours, patterns or location of work from your employer if you require flexibility because you:
  • are the parent, or have responsibility for the care, of a child who is of school age or younger
  • are a carer (within the meaning of the Carer Recognition Act 2010)
  • have a disability
  • are 55 or older
  • are experiencing violence from a member of your family
  • provide care or support to a member of your immediate family or household, who requires care or support because they are experiencing violence from their family.
If you are a parent of a child or have responsibility for the care of a child and are returning to work after taking parental or adoption leave you may request to return to work on a part-time basis to help you care for the child.’

The revised FWIS is available from the Ombudsman.
