Drawing on its expertise in occupational injuries insurance systems, this EUROGIP’s report examines how an employee who suffers an accident at work while teleworking should be treated.
The question takes on its full importance in a context where this organization of remote work has certainly developed in a period of health crisis linked to Covid-19, but has now taken root on a long-term basis.
What coverage is available to employees? What are the prerogatives of the employer, who remains responsible for employee health and safety? What legislation has developed and applies today? What is the case law?
These are just some of the questions examined in this report, which covers seven European countries: Austria, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Sweden.
The well-documented analysis focuses primarily on telecommuting, and not on other possible forms of remote working. In addition, it focuses on salaried employment with reference to the general occupational injury insurance scheme that covers it in the seven countries studied.
