A study by the Society for Human Resource Management says only 56 percent of employers now offer flex schedules, down from 65 percent in 2002.

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 for intermittent FMLA leave may end up working flexible schedules.
