50% increase in remote working tribunal claims

The Covid 19 pandemic has led to organisations adopting a more remote, flexible approach to working.

Employment tribunal claims concerning remote working have increased by 50% from 2021 to 2022. The data showed that there were 27 claims in 2021 and 42 claims in 2022. Prior to the Covid 19 pandemic there were only 6 remote working claims.

The trend is continuing with the first half of 2023 recording 23 cases relating to remote working. The employment tribunal data shows that remote working requests are something employers will have to deal with going forward.
