I have a friend returning to work at the end of the month who is worried that she will be put into a different role and won't be allowed to work from home anymore - she normally worked 3 days a week from home. She is with the company about 6 years and is well regarded etc in a fairly senior role. The question is would the ability to work from home be considered part of her normal conditions of employment and one the employer would need to honour on her return? She has a fairly long commute to the office so losing this would be really bad for her! To be fair to her she understands that company's can't stand still while people on maternity leave and she is more than happy to do whatever a new role might entail (within reason) its just the working from home part that she is worried about. Anyone have any thoughts on this?
