"The user-friendly tools helped
educate our employees and
managers on making the flex
request process work for our
people and our business."

-- Manager, Retail

"The form and advice helped me
approach my request with both my
and the business’s needs in mind.
My supervisor and I collaborated
on a solution that worked well."

– Employee, Accounting

Working Together, Flex Can Happen.


Are Employees Ready?

What does the FFWO say you can ask for? What schedule fits with your job?
Do you know how to write a request?
Have you thought about how your new schedule could be good for the business?


Are Managers Prepared?

Are you ready to decide requests?
Can you ask or offer more than required?
Are the business reasons to say “no” clear?
How do you keep the needs of the business in focus?


Will Collaboration Happen?

A flexible workplace depends on ongoing collaboration. Is everyone ready to let go of “our way or the highway” assumptions?
Do you want to go beyond compliance to real collaboration?


Flex Request Resources

The pioneering SF nonprofit New Ways to Work began introducing flexibility into organizations four decades ago.

Today New Ways sponsors Collaboration@Work, a project supporting superior implementation of the new “Right to Request” ordinance.

It collaborates with employers, government and employees to build a more flexible San Francisco.

SF-FFWO Website
The City’s Office of Labor Standards Enforcement enforces the new law. This official site hosts the law, forms and official information.
