It’s your right
In the UK, employees with 26 weeks’ service have a statutory right to request home working. That doesn’t mean arranging for your calls to be patched through to the nearest pub, though. Typically, it means allocating one or two days a week for home work. And it works. Britain already has 5.4 million homeworkers, while in the US 38% of graduate-level employees do some or all of their work from home. The rest are unemployed, of course.
