Prior this Law, the legal possibility an employee could work somewhere else than employer’s place, were by working at home, detachment or delegation agreement, or by signing a mobility clause. Teleworking regulation is in line with European legislation, responding to labor market needs and demands, but the application of teleworking legislation will raise problems, especially regarding the activities in the norms of safety and health at work and in terms of highlighting the hours provided by teleworkers and the controls performed by the representatives of the competent authorities.
