We are sure everyone is aware of the Government’s announcement on 8 December 2021 implementing tighter Covid restrictions and moving to ‘Plan B’.
From Monday 13 December, those who can, are advised to work from home.
The Government will keep the data under constant review and the measures announced last night will be reviewed on 5 January 2022.
If you are moving to work from home again next week, there are a few things to bear in mind and ensure you have in place:
- Do you have a Homeworking Policy in place?;
- Do you know what your insurance covers in terms of employees working from home and equipment?;
- Do you have a Data Protection Policy?;
- Will staff be using their own equipment, for example their own laptop, and if so do you have a Bring Your Own Device Policy in place?
These are just a few things to think about but there are lots of things employers should consider to ensure homeworking is as seamless and trouble free as possible for both employees and the business.
