Containment: what risk companies if they do not adopt telework five days out of five?

Since Monday, November 2, the government has been putting pressure on companies to generalize teleworking. However, from a legal point of view, it is not compulsory. There is only one new rule written in the national protocol of the Ministry of Labor: when possible, employees must be teleworking five days out of five. “Indirectly, this rule engages the criminal liability of a company“Says journalist David Boéri, live from the 19/20 plateau, Wednesday, November 4.

At issue: ensuring the safety of employees is an obligation provided for by the labor code. “Endangering others is an offense punishable by a fine of 15,000 euros, and up to one year in prison“, continues the journalist. The control of the implementation of full-time teleworking falls to the labor inspectorate. However, in practice, it will be very limited.”For now, it is up to the company to determine whether or not a position can be occupied remotely., specifies David Boéri. It will therefore often be very difficult to decide“.
