Can I decline an employee request to change their hours of work?

Yes you can, but, you must be able to state a sound business reason behind the refusal. However, if the employee is making the request to enable them to care for a child under the age of six, or under the age of 18 in the case of a disabled child, you must carefully consider the request.
