Introduce a legal right for employees to work remotely

Petition Details

To introduce new laws to provide employees with the legal right to work from home where this is practical, with employers only able to refuse requests to work remotely with good reason.

Additional Information

Covid-19 brought about a change in our working lives like we have never experienced before. For those who enjoy the new work life balance, less stress and expenses linked to the everyday commute, the possibility to work in the comfort of their home, to move to parts of the country that are cheaper, less crowded and less polluted and more time for themselves and those they love, this petition asks the Government to enshrine in law the right of employees to work from home.
