Homeoffice – work at home, but right!  The development can be perceived as a strange conscience. Although current surveys suggest that People want more flexible working models, fewer and fewer workers are working from home. While the “Homeoffice” principle enjoys great popularity all over Europe, there is obviously a contrasting culture in Germany, which rather reaffirms the presence in the workplace than actual performance. However, if you are confident about the confidence of your superiors that they are as productive from home as in the office, you should pay attention to a few points before setting up your home workplace.

Worth knowing about “Homeoffice”

What exactly justifies the skepticism of German employers and some workers against homework is in the stars. After an initial enthusiasm for the flexible model “Homeoffice”, which allows employees without good reasons for a presence in the office working in the home office, sneak past old prejudices back debate. According to surveys, employers report that they do less at the home desk than under supervision, although many studies prove the opposite. But also among the colleagues, there is an increasing degree of bad mood in the direction of colleagues working at home. According to the motto “While we are working here, the one Lenz” is rushed in most cases without foundation.
In contrast to this, an age-old German viewpoint, which confirms the mere presence at the workplace as “hardworking”, throws the actual performance into the background. And in fact, almost everyone in the circle of colleagues or acquaintances should know someone who lives, so to speak, at the workplace. And, according to the factual situation, this behavior is also rewarded: in Germany surveys are still promoted or intended for a salary increase which spends most of the time at the workplace. Of course, too And in fact, almost everyone in the circle of colleagues or acquaintances should know someone who lives, so to speak, at the workplace. And, according to the factual situation, this behavior is also rewarded: In Germany surveys are still carried out or intended for a salary increase which spends most of the time at the workplace.

Whether and how much these candidates actually work. The result is not surprising: the actual output is often lower. The leisure activities, such as breaks, private Internet surfing, or sprawling conversations with colleagues over the desks or in the hallway, are much higher than in the case of colleagues who wanted to leave for a certain time.

Of course, the model “Homeoffice” can also go thoroughly. The closest example is that of the young family, which promises to bring the children together, the household with work better. Often the theory remains in this case. For who is present, and when it is behind a door in his own study, is also tangible. Independent and creative creators from the local studio can sing a song about it: “You have a good time and can work when you want,” for example, if there is a spontaneous visit or the partner wants to delegate a task. On the other hand, there is a levy or a bindingly agreed work progress. Between these fronts, on the one hand, the family is under pressure because the expectations of the new working situation are not fulfilled. On the other hand, the work suffers because concentration is limited or impossible. On the other hand, there is a levy or a bindingly agreed work progress.

Homeoffice: A matter of circumstances – and preparation

If the worker observes a few basic rules , the fall cords can be minimized on the way to productive work from home. However, before employees can do their job from home at all or in part, a few principles need to be clarified. Because for the relatively young working model “Homeoffice” there are still no own laws and also no fixed guidelines by employers’ associations. Correspondingly, unlike part-time work, employees do not have the right to allow the chef to work on the desk at home. Therefore, each case is an individual case, which must be negotiated individually with the supervisor. This includes the number of days and the basic conditions. Experts recommend that workers should be plagued, That the agreed points are recorded in writing.


The next way should be to the landlord. It is true that the landlord or homeowner does not have to be informed as to whether the tenant is using the premises only as an apartment or as a working place – of course, as long as no customer visits or regular visits from his superiors. According to Silvia Wiedenmann, head of the department “Hausverwaltung” at the Immmobilienbüro “Anders Wohnen” in Weilheim, it plays a role for a “intended use” of the apartment for an hour or two sitting on a desk chair at the workplace or the All day long – several times a week. For at the end of a tenancy agreement, the wear phenomena on soils, Walls and fittings of an apartment. Especially in the case of soils, according to the experience of the housekeeper always comes to discussions.

After the way to the boss comes the landlord

For example, a tenant has set up a workplace in the living room where he sits on the computer for a day or two, has done a few purchases, answered private mail, played a PC game, or controlled stock prices. Depending on whether he has installed the appropriate rollers for his office chair or has a suitable protective mat under the workplace (-> link to “The matter with the parquet”) the floor under the surface is more or less worn. In order to prevent possible conflicts when pulling out, it is advisable not only to use the right equipment, but also to put on communication. “If a tenant rented an apartment for purely private purposes, the landlord receives a remuneration in the form of the rent and has to accept it,


“According to the example, the floor under the private workplace may only show slight to medium wear marks depending on the duration of the tenancy. “The situation is different when a tenant rolls around the floor every day for eight or nine hours with an office chair – especially on real hardwood floors. Scratches come to the floor, which have nothing to do with normal wear and tear, “says Silvia Wiedenmann. The leaping point is: “If the lessor is informed that the tenant is working in the home office, the floor of the apartment is also” appropriately “worn out if there are higher wear marks under the workplace.” The expert recommends,

The question of material is also a question of costs

Now that the framework conditions for the home office have been clarified, a suitable place has been found for the home workplace and agreements with the family have been made about the “how” and “when”, the concrete planning is enough , Is it large enough, is it sufficiently illuminated, is it ergonomically adjustable? Does the office chair fit, does it have enough adjustment possibilities and does it have the right roles for the floor? If new acquisitions have to be made, they will be charged to the employee – of course, only if the employer has not been willing to accept the full or partial costs.

The same is true for printers, scanners, PCs, telephones, mobile phones or Internet access. If more powerful models are to be purchased or a higher bandwidth is to be booked, this is usually paid by the employee. It is also a question of who is paying the costs of paper, toner or writing materials. There is, however, no discussion in terms of occupational safety and discretion: both must also be guaranteed at the local workplace. Employees and employers have to pay particular attention to the subject of “data protection”. Operational secrets are strictly too scrupulous in private spaces; Therefore, sensitive documents must not be left unattended and accessible to people other than the employee. Data stored on the computer must be protected according to current technical standards.

The question of working hours and the tax

As far as working time is concerned, clear arrangements are also made beforehand: are there fixed working hours, are core working times, and what work is done by which time? Standing eight hours in the agreement, the employee must also work for eight hours. The employer can claim proof of this, but this can not be verified in detail. Accordingly, and this is the crux mentioned at the outset, a solid trust base between employer and employee is necessary at this point. In order to enable communication between the colleague at home and the employees or superiors, experts advise that pre-fixed time sections in which the homeworker must go as a telephone or react promptly to e-mails.

As far as the tax aspects of the home workplace are concerned, it is necessary to have two basic principles: If the workplace or the workplace other than the home office is available, the desk can not be removed. If this is not the case, a share can be claimed for tax purposes. If, however, the home office is at the center of the entire professional activity, the costs are to be exercised without restriction. For employers, the following variant is interesting: A workroom can be let to the employer provided the consent of the owner is valid – so he can apply it under certain circumstances for tax purposes. A discussion with the respective tax consultant is essential for a precise clarification of the circumstances. If the workplace or workplace is provided with a workplace other than the home office, the local desk can not be removed. If this is not the case, a share can be claimed for tax purposes.

The fat end comes to an end

Assuming a solid trust base and clarifying all the conditions, Homeoffice can be an enrichment for both the management and the employees. A further point, however, should be known to the employer in particular: once an employee is allowed to work in the home office, the employer finds it difficult to revoke permission. According to a current judgment of a labor court, companies must take into account the interests of the employee and must not be allowed to return employees to the office via their head or the will of the works council – purely formal, this process represents a transfer.
