Employer Factsheet: Homeworking

Monday, July 26, 2021

Homeworking is the use of the home, supported by technology, for the remote performance of some, or all, of an employee’s normal work. It does not necessarily involve working only at home; it can be combined with part-time attendance at the work place. It can also be defined as the use of home as a work base for jobs which require regular travelling, eg salesmen. It should be differentiated from occasionally working at home for the completion of specific one off tasks when the employee is normally based at a particular office or site. It is assumed for the purpose of this factsheet that the homeworker is an employee of the organisation, ie not self-employed.
