As of 6 June 2022 the House of Lords Administration directly employs 670 individuals. The pay of employees of the House of Lords Administration is not dependent on, nor linked to, the location of their senior line manager.

The House of Lords Administration has a Flexible Working policy which supports individuals to work from home. Some Member-facing services, such as Chamber facing work, Catering & Retail Services and Facilities, work predominantly on-site whilst other offices operate local arrangements whilst ensuring they meet business needs. The House of Lords Human Resources Department does not hold data on how many people employed by the House of Lords work from home for part of the working week. No employee of the House of Lords Administration is contracted to work from home for the whole of the working week.
