Well before the current pandemic, teleworking was growing fast, and different national and supranational regulative means were developed. It was, however, a narrow niche, for very few workers, either in specific sectors, or in specific situations. As a pattern, telework regulations were moved by workers and their representatives for ensuring better balancing between work and private life. Lockdowns changed these realities. Teleworking became an obligation and a norm for many. That prompted both employers and unions to urgently agreeing set of rules to ensure continuation of work process and preventing conflicts.
