Disagreements - Home and hybrid working requests


Employees and employers might disagree about working from home and hybrid working.

Some people might have continued working from home after the covid-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. This might be because it suits their personal circumstances, for example if they have caring responsibilities or a long journey to work. However, some employers might want them to return to the workplace.

Other people might want to be in the workplace more often. This could be because they prefer to work with others face to face. However, some employers might encourage more working from home, or it might be the most popular option with people at work.

Employers and employees should try to find a solution together, taking into account each individual's circumstances.
