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“.
