This book is part of our new series of essential guides for legal practitioners covering what you need to know about how various aspects of UK law have been affected by the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic.


Whether required by law or instigated by choice, home working can be a safer way of organising individual’s relationships with employers and can be as effective as traditional office-based working for many organisations and more so for some.

A practical approach based on understanding the applicable law and risk can head off a lot of the problems that often arise in dealing with moving to and managing home working.

Written by the specialist Employment and Information Law Teams Law team at a well-known advisors Forbes Solicitors, this book sets out practical guidance and suggestions based on experience before and during the COVID-19 outbreak.


The Employment and Information Law teams at Forbes Solicitors regularly advise a wide range of public and private sector organisations about law and practice affecting lone working. The team is involved in delivering briefings and providing training to managers and staff through shared sessions or in-house.

Their experience of advising and supporting of organisations, managing increased home and agile working in response to COVID-19 provides the basis for this book.
