Statistics suggest that the number of people working from home is increasingly rapidly. While the number of people working from home exclusively is comparatively low, the number of people who do so for some of the working week is on the increase.

As employers become more aware of the benefits of allowing staff to work from home, and as more employees gain the right to ask for flexible working arrangements, it becomes important to have proper processes and procedures in place to make sure homeworking is properly managed.

This topic looks at the pros and cons of working from home for both the employer and the employee, the legal position regarding flexible working and practical issues that need to be taken into account before requests are granted, such as health and safety issues and set-up costs.
