Luxembourg’s government says it does not intend, for the time being, to give employees a “right to telework”, after MPs at the Cercle Cité on Monday (19 October) discussed a petition signed by 5,842 people calling for the “right to telework” to be recognised.

Labour Minister Dan Kersch recalled that he was in the process of negotiating a new agreement with trade unions regarding teleworking, which will be on a voluntary basis and “subject to a joint agreement between the employer and the employee”.
