Working from Home Business Policy

This document can be used by an employer to create a Working From Home Policy. A Working From Home Policy outlines the approach an employer shall take to allowing, managing and facilitating employees to work from home or other remote locations.

This document shall provide:

  • a statement on the general purpose of the policy;
  • the scope of the policy;
  • the application process employees should follow to be able to work from home; and
  • the management procedure that shall apply to employees who are working from home.

Please note that it is not a legal requirement for employers to have a Working From Home Policy but it is good business practice.

How to use this document

This document should be made easily available to and communicated with any employees. It is common to display workplace policies in an easily accessible public area so that any persons who may be connected with the Employer's activities in any way can easily see the commitment they have made to allow employees to work from home.

This policy should be signed and dated by a senior member of management who is authorised to do so. This may be the employer himself or the most senior person acting on behalf of the company, e.g. Managing Director. It is the duty of the employer or the most senior person in the company to ensure that the aims, responsibilities and arrangements contained within this document are carried out.

Please note that should this policy be revised or altered at any time, these revisions and alterations must be communicated effectively to employees at the earliest opportunity.

Applicable law

Employers should be aware of HSE guidance on employees working from home and the relevant ACAS guidance.
