From Wednesday 9 June, teleworking can be made more flexible in consultation with the social partners in companies., the Elysee said on April 29, when the stages of the deconfinement calendar were announced.
Is this the end of widespread teleworking? An increase in the number of face-to-face days allowed? A carte blanche given to companies to organize the presence of their employees in the company?
Teleworking: a consultation phase
“I wish as soon as possible give back to companies to define the right rules ”, announced Elisabeth Borne, the Minister of Labor, on LCI, Friday April 23.
To define this relaxation, the Head of State announces a “major phase of consultation” with three groups of actors mobilized: parliamentarians, all social partners and professionals from the sectors concerned and elected officials from the territories.
This consultation work will give rise to a presentation of detailed measures by the Prime Minister, during the week of May 10.
100% teleworking until June 9, 2021
In summary, until June 9, 2021, the rule remains 100% teleworking as soon as possible, with an exemption of one day per week at the office for employees who feel the need.
And from June 9, employers will again be able to define, within the framework of social dialogue, the number of days of remote work that they wish to establish in their company.
Companies that have already signed agreements on teleworking will be able to put them back in place normally.
The on-site health protocol should once again be updated.
The Ministry of Labor could draw inspiration from an old version of this document, which indicated that “i[le télétravail est […] a recommended practice in that it participates in the process of preventing the risk of infection with SARS-CoV-2 and makes it possible to limit social interactions around the workplaces and on home-work journeys.
As such, employers set, within the framework of local social dialogue, a minimum number of teleworking days per week, for positions which allow it. “]i
