We don't have a formal 'checking in' policy for work.
Please do not check-in for work all the time as it stops us doing our job.
However, if you've not heard from us for a period of time (say a couple of weeks) we don't mind you sending a quick email firstname.lastname@example.org to say you are around and free to work.
