Accidents at work and telework in 7 European countries: the new EUROGIP report in English

Home > The news of EUROGIP and occupational risks in Europe > Accidents at work and telework in 7 European countries: the new EUROGIP report in English

The health crisis has led to an unprecedented acceleration of telework. Today, this form of work organisation seems to be firmly established, and in particular the hybrid model, combining telework with face-to-face days in the office.

Some questions about insurance in case of accidents while teleworking become important:

  • What coverage does the employee have in case of a work-related accident while teleworking?
  • What are the prerogatives of the employer who remains responsible for the health and safety of the employee?
  • What legislation has been developed and applies today?
  • What is the case law?

The report published by EUROGIP analyses the situation with regard to these questions in seven European countries: Austria, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Sweden.

The English version is now available following the French version published earlier.
