Teleworking: a new health protocol from January 3, 2022

It has been a few long months now that very (too many?) French people have become familiar with “ telecommuting “ , this professional activity carried out remotely thanks to a whole host of modern telecommunications tools. We thought the teleworking reserved for 60, during the pandemic, but the latter was also topical in 2021. And guess what? It will not yet constitute an old memory in 2021, since the latter will still be relevant and even reinforced with new measures, from the 3rd January 2022.

Telework back start 2022!

Indeed, if you thought you were done with teleworking, and soon find the taste for discussions in front of the coffee machine, you will have to revise your projects. This morning, on Europe 1, the Minister of Labor, Elisabeth Borne, confirmed new measures concerning teleworking, inviting companies to “ accelerate ” the use of this form of remote activity. The Minister also explains that it is essential to consider reinforcing the measures concerning telework now.

At the microphone of Europe 1, Elisabeth Borne explains: “ With the situation, we must speed up, strengthen teleworking. I ask companies to prepare now to reinforce teleworking at the start of the school year, therefore on January 3, with a target of at least three days for positions that allow it, or even four days when possible. ”At present, this same target is set at two to three days.

Also, the now famous“ sanitary protocol “, aimed at ensuring the health and safety of employees in companies, will be updated as soon as they return to business on Monday January 3 2022. The latest version dates back to December 8. The government believes that companies now have the opportunity to anticipate these new measures to come, and ensure to invite their employees “ on site ” only two to three days per week. According to a recent Harris Interactive survey, 000% of employees have the possibility to work easily from their home.

In addition, for the measure to be applied, Élisabeth Borne promises that “labor inspection controls” will be “reinforced”. It estimates these at a rate of 5 000 checks per month approximately.
