The global spread of Covid-19 is forcing employers worldwide to introduce teleworking. In Europe there are no uniform regulations for the introduction of telework, except for the voluntary European framework agreement from 2002, which only contains a general legal framework. However, this agreement is not binding law for the EU member states. In the absence of uniform rules, employers who employ workers in different European countries live with the constant risk of violating country-specific regulations.
To help employers, make the best decision for their company, the European Employment Group will celebrate a webinar on Thursday November 19th, 2020 (4.00 pm CET), where a general and updated overview of the regulatory situation of teleworking in Europe will be given, focusing on aspects such as its voluntary or compulsory nature, how telework (remote from home) works with the right to digital disconnection, business obligations regarding health and safety during teleworking, as well as other issues of interest such as data protection, confidentiality or the obligation of companies, if apply, to pay the expenses derived from teleworking.
