To enable the employees to work from home (WFH), you have issued the company assets to the employees. While issuing the assets, you say that you had taken the "consent form" from the employees. However, what kind of consent have you taken from the employees?
In fact, there is nothing like consent. Computer, laptops or their accessories are the fixed assets of the company. If the employees are issued with the fixed asset, then each employee must sign the "Loan Card". In the loan card, the details of the assets like product description, model, make, year of purchase, value etc. are written. Additionally, an undertaking is taken to recover the depreciated price of the asset in case of "wilful damage". This loan card acts as evidence of the allocation of the asset. It's better to get the loan card signed by the HOD too.
Your question is "what should we do more to avoid any future consequences?" What consequences do you foresee? Many times, the companies invite problems because of improper records. Therefore, I recommend you maintain the proper records. If you visualise different consequences, then please specify so.
