Daily Mail & Computer World Reporting British Government To Table Law Giving Employees The Right To Work From Home

More mobilityView predictions are coming true and we believe that the trends unfolding in the US, UK, Holland, and the rest of the EU are going to go global.

Working From Home will become a standard employee labour law right and there are significant tax, expense and labour law implications for both employers and employees alike.

Daily Mail direct quote #1 : “Millions of workers will have the right to demand working from home on day one of their new job under new laws drawn up by ministers.”

Computer World direct quote #1 : “The proposed flexible working rules are part of the broad "Employment Relations (Flexible Working) Bill," which is currently making its way through Parliament. The proposed legislation has broad cross-party support and is expected to be passed into law…”

Computer World direct quote #2 : “Although employers will now need to start amending their flexible working policies and updating their procedures to ensure they are compliant with the new legislation, Hudson said it is unlikely that there will suddenly be a huge influx of requests when these changes come into force.”
