The Law Around Staff Working From Home


Employer liability around working from home and the wellbeing of staff have become two critical issues as we enter our ninth month of restrictions following the outbreak of Covid-19.

I was delighted to speak with one of Ireland’s best known and well-respected experts in employment law about what employers need to consider when it comes to their staff working from home. In this recorded interview with Richard Grogan, Partner at Richard Grogan & Associates, we discuss the need for employers to consider the health and safety of staff working from home, their ergonomic set up, risk-assessment, data security and the need to record working hours.

Richard tackles the thorny subject of the consequences for employer who do not engage, including insurance risk and staff making claims.
