Coronavirus: Mandatory remote working


Decree-Law 94-A/2020 of 3 November amends, among others, Decree-Law 79-A/2020 of 30 September, which established “exceptional, transitional arrangements for reorganisation of work”. Its aim was to minimise the spread of COVID-19.

The Decree-Law makes remote working mandatory for all workers whose place of work is located in a geographical area where the epidemiological situation justifies it. These areas are defined by the Government by a resolution of the Council of Ministers.

These measures cover both people working and people living in these locations.

If the employer considers that the conditions laid down for the admissibility of remote working are not met, it must notify the workers of the decision in a written document.
