This line manager briefing examines the law and good practice on homeworking, including the statutory right for eligible employees to ask to work from home and how line managers can best address the practical issues associated with homeworking.
Homeworking can provide benefits for an organisation, although homeworking arrangements and the management of homeworkers are not without challenges. However, with careful thought and planning and regular effective communication, an arrangement under which an employee performs some or all of his or her work from home can be highly productive.
This line manager briefing is accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation for training purposes, which should be used in conjunction with the briefing. The briefing and PowerPoint presentation can be adapted for use, subject to the XpertHR terms and conditions of use.
