In this new podcast, members of leading international employment law alliance Innangard address the new challenges employers are faced with, now that teleworking is becoming a new post-pandemic normal.
This panel of employment law experts is hosted and chaired by Mathilde Houet-Weil from Weil & Associés in France and features contributions from Paul Cahill from CC Solicitors in Ireland, Juan José Hita Fernandez from Augusta Abogados in Spain, Carl Fredrik Hedenström from Morris Law in Sweden, and Dr Ulf Goeke from Seitz Partner in Germany.
This podcast offers a comparative overview of the rules governing teleworking in these various jurisdictions with a particular focus on:
- Whether teleworking can be imposed by either the employer or the employee now that it is no longer mandatory;
- What if the employee teleworks from outside of his home and potentially abroad, including without prior authorization from the employer;
- How can employers make sure that they fulfill their duty of care in case of teleworking, taking into account the risk of an occupational accident, burn out or mental issues;
- How can GDPR compliance be achieved and data security risks be addressed;
- What is the role played by works councils and unions in this area.
Finally, our experts share tips and best practices to help international employers mitigate the risks and achieve a win-win situation that benefits all parties: improved work-life balance and reduced commuting time for employees on the one hand and higher productivity and lower operating costs for companies on the other hand.
