Working from home
The current guidance is that people should work from home unless it is not possible for them to do so. Once it has been established that work can be done from home, the following should be considered by employers:
- Health & Safety;
- Equipment needed;
- Working time;
- Trust, honesty, inclusion;
- Financial and tax implications;
- Data protection; and
- Managing performance.
You should ensure that home workers understand the process for reporting their whereabouts or their absence from work. An employer’s duty of care does not leave when an employee works from home, so it is important that you still know your employee is working and is healthy and safe.
