HOME WORKING POLICY
WHEN TO USE THIS DOCUMENT
This policy sets out the way in which an organisation operates with regard to employees working from home.
All of our policies combine professional legal and personnel / HR knowledge with practical experience in business to provide an easy to use policy which meets with your legal responsibilities and obligations.

It also explains the rights and responsibilities of both the employer and the employee. If properly followed, this policy will also help to ensure that the employer complies with all their legal duties and obligations for the protection of employees.
The policy contains careful explanations of the agreed criteria for working at home and how requests are dealt with, as well as allowing for an employer to outline the tasks which are unsuitable for working at home.
