Associate Lydia Moore provided comments to People Management, first published May 28, on the ongoing conversation around hybrid working, with many employers currently assessing how a mix of home and office working could benefit them. Moore advocated reviewing standard employment contracts to cover some of the more practical considerations of a hybrid setup, such as place of work; work hours; details of expense allowances; and data protection obligations.
