Many people have been working from home for over 1 year now and, at first, it was very much a case of adapting and making it through the unknown and unprecedented times. This meant that no specific policies were drawn up, or agreed, due to the unforeseen circumstances. However, as restrictions begin to ease and more people are starting to return to the workplace, or adopt a hybrid working model, it is important that you have the correct policies in place.
Have you considered any of the following:
- Who is responsible for the policy?
- What homeworking arrangements are needed?
- Are there any specific conditions that are necessary for employees working from home?
- Insurance arrangements
- Data protection, security and health and safety
There are a number of factors, not limited to the points listed above, that need to be carefully considered.
