This Homeworker Agreement is designed to be used where either a new or
existing employee has agreed that their main place of work will be
elsewhere than the Employer’s office, or in any event in a location which
is not under the control of the Employer.
Employers must provide workers and employees with a written statement of
their main terms and conditions of employment and this is often known as a Standard Form Section One Statement.
This agreement covers the requirements of a Standard Form Section One
Statement. This contract complies with these requirements and must be
provided to the employee or worker by day one of employment.
Employers may find that employing staff as Homeworkers considerably reduces
their overheads whilst employees are given a greater freedom and the
opportunity to work in more comfortable surroundings.
This agreement is drafted to ensure that Employers meet all of their legal
obligations to their employees whilst ensuring that the work they receive
is still of the standard that they might expect if the employee was in a
more controlled environment.
There is a unique ‘Right to Enter’ clause which entitles the employer to
enter the employee’s premises at reasonable times in order to inspect
company property, carry out risk assessments, and recover company property
following termination of employment. Another clause sets out any equipment
the company will provide to the employee, how it should be installed and
serviced and also covers insurance aspects. There is also an expenses
option which sets out reimbursement of pre-approved expenses or
alternatively a fixed monthly allowance to cover expenses.
