Working from Home Policy
The Division does not support home-based work arrangements on an ongoing basis but recognises that staff will be required to undertake work from home from time to time. In these cases a risk asssessment of the area to be used needs to be undertaken by the employee. A proforma check list is provided to assist in assessing risks involved.
