Use these three ways to prepare for load shedding:
Know when Eskom's going to flip the switch
Before you can plan anything, you need to know when Eskom plans to flip the switch in your area so you can plan properly. Go towww.loadshedding.eskom.co.za to find out.

If you decide to exchange time or allow employees to work from home, have a formal written agreement in place about what you agree on, and get your employees to commit to it. This way you can avoid any conflict with employees further down the line.
