Telework: still the rule!

Author: Catherine Mairy (Legal expert)

Following the Consultative Committee of 22 October 2020, it was confirmed that teleworking from home remains the rule.

A Ministerial Decree of 23 October 2020 in addition specifies that consultations will be organised with the employer federations; the aim of these consultations is to introduce a monitoring system making employers more responsible, so that this rule is applied where it should. 

Important note! The competent local authorities can take additional preventive measures.
