What does the law say?
Organisations that had already drafted a working from home policy before 1 January 2021 do not need to take any action. All other organisations for which working from home is possible are now obliged to develop and implement a working from home policy.
The aim of the working from home policy is to both monitor productivity and guarantee the well-being of employees. For example, agreements must be made about:
- The equipment required for teleworking
- Working hours and schedules
- Duties and performance standards
- Details about where employees can go in case of problems
The prices depends on how you follow the training. 1 year access to the training and all content is included in the price.
If your organisation is affiliated with the Mensura External Service for Prevention and Protection, you will receive a discount. If you have prevention units and your balance is sufficient, you can pay with this.
