Guidance for Remote Working

10 July 2020 

In December 2019 the Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation published Remote Work in Ireland, a report on the prevalence and types of remote working solutions in Ireland, the attitudes towards them and influencing factors for employees and employers when engaging with these solutions.

The responsibility for health and safety at work rests with the employer regardless of whether an employee works remotely. The employer has a duty to have safe systems of work in place; he or she should ensure that the system of work for those working from home is reasonable. This includes supervision, communication, training, breaks, supports, and fairness, allocation of work and respectful behaviour and management.
