Policies and procedures for telework once the business reopens.
Employers are encouraged to use teleworking if possible and many employers in Sweden have adopted a policy for employees to utilise teleworking, until the situation with the Coronavirus has subsided. Employers who offer their employees the option to work from home, are still responsible for their employees’ work environment. As such, employers should be responsive to employees’ requests to borrow or buy a better computer screen, keyboard, chair or other related work equipment. Employees still have an obligation to observe the duty of loyalty towards their employers, even if they are working from home, which means that they have to maintain security levels and keep the employer’s information confidential.
