As we have been receiving many questions about working from home, we would like to let our members know that there no restrictions in the CUPE 951 collective agreement to prevent working from home. As well, anyone who is directed to work from home is covered under WorkSafeBC for the tasks and activities that they are expected to perform while they are working.
We recommend that employees working from home set up their workstation following good ergonomic principles in order to minimize injury. Please find guidance on this here: https://www.uvic.ca/hr/health-wellness/ergonomics/index.php
We know that this is an uncertain time, and welcome your questions about the rapidly changing work environment. Please feel free to contact our offices by email or phone.
