Remote Working Policies and Procedures

Writing and Reviewing Remote Working Policies

One of our most popular documents in light of the recent pandemic and new ways of working is the Remote Working Policy.

Previously many organisations implemented a restrictive most quite unclear “home working” policy.

In the majority of cases, home working was very much dependent on the role type.

Remote working was quite ad-hoc, older documentation is generally vague and therefore open to interpretation.

What Does Remote Working Cover?

Modern Remote Working policies can cover a myriad of scenarios and are tailored to each business.

However, common areas that we work to define with clients are:

  • Definition of working spaces.
  • The permanence of home or remote working.
  • Management of organisational and customer data protection obligations when remote working.
  • Acceptable expenses when remote working.
  • Obligations of the organisation to provide hardware and other assets to enable an easy transition to remote working.
  • Security of Home and Remote environments and controls around these.
  • The communication and accessibility obligations of staff who are remote working.
  • Lines of reporting.
  • Business continuity when remote working – risks and mitigations.
  • Hours of work.

Other Considerations

There are many other areas to consider when defining a clear remote working policy.

We have been working closely with many of our clients to build a broad knowledge of the many facets of defining a remote working policy.
