Global Dialogue Forum on the Challenges and Opportunities of Teleworking for Workers and Employers in the ICTS and Financial Services Sectors

The purpose of the Forum was for tripartite participants to share their experiences on telework in these sectors with a view to increasing understanding of and developing consensus on the way forward with regard to its: (a) prevalence; (b) economic and social risks and benefits; and (c) employment relationships, work organization and professional development practices linked, and their impacts on the rights and protection of teleworkers, including those engaged in involuntary telework. Participants also examined existing standards relevant to telework and considered how social dialogue could be harnessed to promote decent work in telework.
