Temporary working from home policy checklist

Make it Legal™ Checklist

Here are a few important steps to take to finish your document

Read the Policy to make sure it meets your business’ needs. Remember that, if you have any questions, you can Ask a lawyer for advice.

Just having a Temporary Working From Home Policy in place is not enough to ensure that you comply with your legal obligations. Make sure your business complies with employment law by, for example, upholding employees’ health and safety even when they’re working remotely.

Make the Temporary Working From Home Policy available to employees. You could, for example, include it in induction packs, send it out by email, or put it on an intranet site.

The Temporary Working From Home Policy is not a contract and does not need to be signed or agreed to by your employees. You can ask employees to sign an acknowledgement to show that they’ve received it, but it’s not legally required.

A copy of your Temporary Working From Home Policy will be stored automatically in your Rocket Lawyer account ‘Dashboard’. You should also download and securely store a copy of your Policy for your records.

Whenever the Policy is amended, keep a copy of each version that has been in force and a record of when it was introduced and how and when each version was made available to employees.

Employees should also keep a copy of the Policy or have easy access to it (eg via your staff intranet). ​​​​​​​
