Concerns that teleworkers are more vulnerable to exploitation have sparked a deal between the European Union's employer and worker federations in the sector.

Eurocommerce and Uni-Europa Commerce have struck a deal, promising to treat teleworkers in the same way as employees are dealt with in more traditional workplaces.

Teleworking deal

The federations have:
  • Agreed a checklist of information, such as length of the employee's normal working day or week, that teleworkers must be provided with before starting a job

  • Recognised the right of a teleworker to communicate confidentiality with trade union representatives

  • Accepted that the place where telework is carried out should be designed, "whenever possible", to conform with regulations for standard company premises.
