Management Procedure Manual

TOPIC:

Working from home is becoming more attractive as commuting time increases, gas prices inch higher and workers demand more family time.
Companies also benefit from flexible work hours and reduced office space.
But as this trend grows, businesses face new legal issues and must have clear policies in place, experts say. Companies can still be liable for their workers' safety and equipment, and must observe labour laws.

Areas to be covered:

3. Employers responsibility for employee compliance - legal issues untested

4. Periodic compliance inspections by employer -

5. Worksafe inspections
