The last 18 months has seen a huge increase in the number of staff working from home. As a result, there’s an increased expectation on the part of churches and Christian organisations, and those who work for them, to consider working from home as a viable option.
To help our clients struggling with this issue, we have produced a comprehensive Homeworking/Hybrid Working Policy. It covers a number of issues that need to be considered when permitting staff to work from home (or some other location), including:
- Data Protection issues, such as steps to reduce the risk of data breaches
- Confidentiality, such as the implications of smart speakers
- Health and Safety, such as the need for risk assessments and ensuring good mental and physical health for those working remotely
- Expenses, such as calculating travel expenses for those based at home
- Things to consider before agreeing homeworking.
You can purchase this policy as a standalone policy, or as part of our comprehensive Employment Pack, which includes a raft of other useful documents.
