Asked by: Manufacturing HR


Recently, one female employee in our company is pregnant and her expected delivery date is in July. She applied for working from home in May and June. Generally speaking, our company can agree a working-from-home application, but I would like to know are there any related risk if the employee works from home?

Firstly, one risk is about the identification of occupational injuries. Since an employee works from home, the work place will be extended to include the employee's residence. If accidents happen at home, they may be considered as occupational injuries.

Secondly, overtime management. For employees working from home, it is difficult for the company to perform attendance requirement towards them. Therefore, it is necessary to strictly enforce the overtime approval system. Otherwise, employees may discretionally prolong their working time and make a claim for overtime payment.

It is recommended that the company arrange employees to take annual leave first, in order to reduce the number of days when employees working from home.
