If your company is teleworking, it is MANDATORY to formalize a written agreement.
Once the emergency situation by the COVID-19 has ended for which many companies had to start working, because of this situation, in telework, some of them have continued teleworking.
We remind you that with Law 10/2021, the law regulating teleworking, is understood as teleworking when at least 30% of the working day must be performed in this modality, within the reference period of 3 months or the equivalent percentage, depending on the duration of the contract.
On February 3, 2023 we sent you an extensive newsletter on the regularization of teleworking in companies.
If your company is teleworking, it is MANDATORY to formalize this agreement in writing, which must be made in the initial contract or in a subsequent document (Annex), before teleworking starts.
This agreement must include the changes in the conditions for the provision of remote services, after agreement between the company and the employee, and that the company will pay the teleworking expenses.
The decision to telework will be voluntary and reversible for the company and the employee and the request must be communicated within a prior term established in the agreement for such notice.
It is important to note that if such agreement is not formalized in writing and the obligations are not complied with, the company may be sanctioned.
You can contact your labor advisor, in case you are teleworking, to formalize the agreement in writing.
