Work From Home Program

Work From Home Program

The City of Greater Sudbury (CGS) has a Work from Home Program that allows an employee to fulfil their regular job responsibilities from home in an environment that is as productive as it is within a CGS work location. This policy is applicable when the Employer deems that a position is eligible to work from home and the employee in the position applies and is approved to participate in the program. If a position is eligible to work from home on a part-time or full-time basis, this will be indicated on the employment opportunity.

For working from home on a part-time basis, employees are expected to report to the office 1-4 days per week.

For working from home on a full-time basis, employees are expected to report to the office 2 days per month.

Employees working from home must report to the CGS work location as operationally required (team meetings, committee meetings, training, etc.).

In order to work from home, the employee will need to provide (at their own expense):

  • High-speed internet connection, with data port at the workstation;
  • Internet router (if required);
  • Office equipment that meets ergonomic specifications, including desk and chair suitability;
  • A dedicated and appropriate defined workplace in which business will be conducted to ensure privacy and confidentiality.
