Abstract

This chapter discusses teleworking/telecommuting from a legal perspective, as applied to the management of teleworkers. The main issues covered are the definition of teleworking, employment relationships and employment contracts for telecommuting, health and safety implications of teleworking, and other legal-related considerations to be taken. Lastly, implications are discussed for both the management of organizations and the legal establishment. This chapter examines teleworking from a legal point of view. Although it was written from a European (in particular, British) perspective, we have tried to use material with relevance extending beyond the boundaries of one specific country, and the arguments are intended and expected to apply to a much wider audience and circumstances.
