Employers and homeworking faq

If you're an employer looking for information about the ins, outs and mustdos of homeworking, there's plenty of good (if often sometimes very basic) information at the Business Link web site including sections on:
> Advantages and disadvantages of employees working at home
> Types of work and skills suited to home working
> Employment contracts and working from or at home
> Kitting out people who work at home
> Manage employees who work from home
> Your health and safety obligations towards home workers
> How technology can facilitate working from home
> Responsibilities of home workers
> Here's how I manage the performance of my home workers and keep them motivated

There's also a DTI guidance leaflet on teleworking available as a pdf here and something similar from ACAS here.
