The primary purpose of this letter is to make a formal written request to the employer to sanction a remote working arrangement. Sometimes, the remote working arrangement may be sanctioned over verbal communication with the employer. Still, it is always better to put the request in writing (even if verbal approval has already been provided) to avoid any disputes in the future.

Under a remote work arrangement, the employee performs their duties from a location outside the office such as their home or other remote locations. For example, a software developer working from home and connecting with the company and colleagues through online tools such as Teams, Discord, etc.

This letter can be used by any employee working in diverse types of organizations/companies. This document can be used in case of an initial request or following up on verbal communication with the employer.

The initial working arrangement is determined by the employment agreement or offer letter issued to the employee. This letter is used to make changes to such an arrangement. If the proposed remote working arrangement is as per the binding internal policies of the organization or applicable laws and regulations in the state where the employee is working, the employer must accept such proposal.

How to use this document?

This letter can be used even if the employee has received verbal permission from the employer for a remote work arrangement. Using this letter will help the employee to put the request and other details on record for any further reference.

This letter is specifically created to request remote work arrangements for requesting flexible working hours, a separate Letter Requesting Flexible Working Hours is available on this website.

In this letter, all major details, including any alternative arrangements, the start date of remote work, the trial period, etc. will be covered.
