Homeworking Guide

Employment Law & HR
BG Purple

Homeworking has become part of normal working practice, whether full time or for part of the working week. Home or ‘remote’ workers still need to be protected from the potential risks associated with their work and the same health & safety duties and responsibilities apply to both employers and employees as would in a ‘traditional’ workplace. 

Whilst employers have less control over a homeworking environment, employee health issues can arise if risks from poor workstations or the feelings of isolation are not properly managed. 

This PDF icon guide here sets out the key considerations for working from home, the legal requirements, and the best practice, based on Health & Safety Executive’s guidance.
