Abstract This report examines the phenomenon of telework in the EU, particularly in the context of the European Framework Agreement on Telework. It first assesses the incidence of telework across the 27 EU Members States and Norway, highlighting the overall increase in telework usage. It goes on to examine the regulatory framework for telework, with a particular focus on the European Framework Agreement's implementation in the context of national industrial relations systems and given the unique nature of this autonomous agreement. The report also looks at issues concerning the employment and working conditions of teleworkers, such as safety and health, data protection, access to training and the voluntary nature of telework. It concludes with an overview of the social partners' position on telework.
