I need to make a statutory request to work part time to my employers. However, I would like to firstly request to work 2 days in the office and one day (or evening/afternoons etc to make up a days hours) from home. What I don't want to do is make a statutory request and mess it up for them to then go on to refuse me working 3 days a week. Can anyone help please and state exactly what I need to put in my letter without me messing up? I need to also state how it won't affect my employer's business but I'm not sure how to do this either. Help please!

Put both options in the same application.
Preference one
Preference two

Yes you need to say how it can be accommodated.

You could suggest a trial of the new arrangement.
