Definition of teleworking (home office)

Work supervised through electronic means or teleworking is a labor arrangement in which the employer supervises the employee, working from a location other than the employer’s physical workplace, through specific mechanisms. The physical presence of the employee is not required within the workplace. Teleworking is characterized by its reliance on IT equipment, and it uses information and communication technologies to facilitate contact and instruction between the employee and the employer. If the employee does not use IT equipment and is not under the employer’s direct supervision, the working arrangement falls under the “home working” category.

For the purposes of teleworking, information and communication technologies are understood as the set of services, infrastructure, networks, software, computer applications and devices that have the purpose of facilitating tasks and functions in the work centers.
