Remote Working



 

The Remote Working Policy offers full flexibility to Public Service employees to carry out their work from different places beyond their formal office, on a regular basis.
 
The policy entered into force on 1st October 2021 and is currently undergoing a transition period of 18 months to shift from the existing teleworking system to the new remote working policy. This will enable the necessary changes in equipment and logistics to take place.
 
The Remote Working Policy also introduces guidance to ensure professional standards in service provision, data protection, employee well-being and use of technological equipment, as well as to safeguard laws, policies and sectoral agreements currently in force.  The Policy may be found in Section 4 of the Manual on Work-Life Balance Measures which may be accessed here.

Employees who wish to apply for Remote Working on an individual basis may do so via the application form which may be accessed here.
