Why the change? Experts say there may be less need for flextime as organizations outsource after-hour operations to other time zones. And the rising cost of fuel may be making car-pooling, with its rigid scheduling, more attractive than flextime.
Tip: Remember that you may be required to offer flexible schedules as a reasonable accommodation for employees with disabilities. Also, employees eligible formay end up working flexible schedules.
