The hitherto unregulated issues related to remote work are to be regulated in the amendment to the Labour Code. Wojciech Bigaj, attorney at law, talked about the planned changes for the NEWSERIA Information Agency (Agencja Informacyjna NEWSERIA). The expert of our law firm referred primarily to the fact that the announced regulations introduce a lot of formalities which may discourage the employers from using remote work. In addition, he noted that some of the provisions are consistent with the regulations on teleworking, i.e. forms of work outside the workplace, and using electronic means of communication, which have not been widely used so far. Mr. Bigaj also referred to the regulation of the costs incurred by an employee in connection with working at home.
