The European Foundation for the improvement of living and working conditions (Eurofound) is hosting a webinar to discuss its latest research findings on the growing number of mobile workers using information and communication technologies (ICT) or workers who are not tied to a particular work location as they use a tablet, laptop or phone to connect to the company network.
The webinar will bring together practitioners and policymakers to illustrate experiences and share innovative approaches aimed at addressing issues arising from this type of employment. It will be an opportunity to hear from those on the ground and to explore the advantages and disadvantages of telework/ICT-based mobile work for employees, employers and the self-employed.
Examples of new developments will include legal initiatives such as the French right to disconnect (‘le droit à la déconnexion’), safeguarding the health and well-being of workers, work intensification and increase in work-life conflicts for self-employed workers.
This webinar is aimed at all workers in Europe affected by or interested in flexible digital work arrangements, including the social partners, EU institutions, and national government representatives, as well as academics and civil society.
