Now that the seemingly new-norm for many people is to work from home, effectively you are creating a new work environment within the confines of your own domestic home. Having spoken to several insurance companies, they have said that it is important that you inform them that you are working from home as they may not pay-out in the unfortunate event that you need to make a claim as your home is now being used for business. Some insurance companies are also requesting that you have your electrical equipment tested for safety as you would in an office environment. We would urge that anyone working from home contacts their insurance for some clarity as it may be too late to amend if you do make a claim. Please note all insurance companies are different and each will provide their own guidance and some may charge a fee to amend your policy.
