Detailed plans for the flexible operating hours scheme have been published, as the Government continues with plans to change how courts work.
The pilot scheme, which will be held in 11 courtrooms in England and Wales, is intended to create a system where people work different, but not extended, hours.
HM Courts and Tribunals Service says it will not expect any individual, to work for more hours in a day than they currently do.
At Manchester County Court, the proposal is to run an additional half-day either before or after the current court day. Listings will vary over the 12-week period but will start on some days at 8am and finish on others at 8pm. Early sessions are limited to warrant suspensions, civil applications of less than 30 minutes, and adjourned possession work. Later sessions involve small claims, telephone case management hearings and civil applications lasting less than an hour.
