  • Remote Work in Europe

    European Guide to Support Employers

    Remote work is a rapidly growing trend in the European job market. Although the concept goes back more than 50 years, and in some European countries the issue was first regulated by law over 20 years ago, it has become far more widespread since the pandemic. Currently, the majority of employers realize that, sooner or later, remote, tele- or hybrid- work will unavoidably need to be implemented as a permanent solution rather than as an ad-hoc method of work in emergency situations (or whenever office work proves impossible).

    Learn more about the legal solutions currently implemented in 29 European countries, from the types of telework and the procedures for its implementation, through the obligations imposed on employers and the rights of employees to aspects of liability.
