In Australia, when an employee is working from home (WFH), the same duties apply to the employer as in a standard environment.

The employer should also consider the change in circumstances and the impact this has on the environment and the employee.

Streamlining with Workforce Management Software Australia

In Australia any employee working for 12 months or more in the same organisation is able to request for a flexible work arrangement. The employer is required to manage and justify his decision.

When an employer is reviewing an employee working arrangement application, the following aspects should be reviewed:

  • The validity of the reason for the request
  • The impact on productivity
  • The suitability of the working environment
  • The sustainability of the arrangement over time
  • The impact on the current employment contract
  • The budget required to setup the arrangement

With Homesquad’s HR software Australia, the onboarding process and application management, such as delivering feedback, approving, or rejecting, all takes place in a single platform.
