How to work to a deadline and making a Swale workplace accident claim against your employer
If you have an accident while working and it was not your fault, you may be thinking about making a Swale workplace accident claim. Find out if you are eligible to do so by contacting us at Accident Advice Helpline.
In some businesses, not only will you have to travel a lot for work, you will also be expected to meet your deadlines even on an exceptionally busy week where you are travelling a lot of the time.
Basically, you cannot afford not to meet your deadlines, just as you shouldn’t really try to avoid the travelling that your employer needs you to do, so you will have to find ways of working on the move. Here are some tricks for meeting important deadlines whilst you are on the move, and without having to worry about overwork and becoming ill due to stress.
- Work on the move. If you are able to get your laptop or tablet to connect to the wifi on your train, plane or coach, you can always work whilst you are travelling. This may actually be an ideal solution, as it allows you to work with no distractions, as you aren’t able to do anything else anyway.
- Work a couple of hours each night. When you are on the move and navigating your way through a new city or town you might not find time to get as much work done as you would like. However, you should be able to get a couple of hours work in each evening, and most hotels have wifi in the rooms.
- Ask for a deadline extension. Obviously you can’t constantly ask for deadline extensions if you travel a lot, but if you have a week where you are travelling a lot and also have a very tight deadline, it is worth asking for a deadline extension to give you a little more time, even if this is only a day or two.
