A Request for Remote Working Arrangement is a letter sent by an employee to their employer, requesting to work from home. A remote work arrangement allows the employee to work outside the office or designated work location. In this way, the employee can work from home or any other suitable environment other than the office or work location, usually for a specified period.
The employee may apply to work remotely for specific reasons. For example, if the employee is the primary caregiver of their sick relative or the employee feels more comfortable working from home. To work from home, the employee should first send this letter to their employers, stating the precise reason for their request and assuring the employer that the remote work will not affect their productivity.
How to use this document
The following information is required: full name and address of the employer and employee, a clear reason for the request, nature of current employment (such as part-time or full-time employment), and the new working arrangement (such as hours of work and other schedules of the remote work).
After completing the document, it should be printed, and the employee making this request should sign the document and send it to the employer. If the employer is an organization (such as a company, firm, business, or other organization), the letter should be sent to an officer of that organization, for example, the human resources manager. Alternatively, this letter may be sent by email.
After sending the letter, the employee should wait for their employer's response. An employer has the right to either grant or refuse such a request, particularly if remote work is not specified in the Employment Agreement, Employee Handbook, and Remote Work Policy, or other policy documents provided by the employer.
The Nigerian Labour Act, 2004 regulates employer and employee relationships. The rules of general contract also apply to this document.
