European citizens’ remote work support

RemotEU is a project focus on the research of different legal models for remote work in the European Union. Living in a place and working somewhere else is a reality. RemotEU has the objective of attending to this matter and supporting new regulations to help remote workers and companies.

Why RemotEU

The lockdown caused by COVID-19 forced remote work to become mainstream. Companies had to implement new measures to make remote work possible and this new model changed the way they organized their teams.

This model has brought consequences not only at labour level. Remote workers during these months realized they wished for some changes in their lives. Those could have been living in a different country while they were carrying out their work at the distance, or even in their own country.

Public Administrations have reacted implementing or adapting the current laws to regulate this situation. Nevertheless, this regulation is still not enough for workers and companies because of social security, tax payments, etc.

The promotion of a transnational mobility, free, safe and inclusive into the EU.

Offering public, open and accesible information about remote work and related bureaucracy to European citizens.

One-stop-shop with all the regulation related to remote work for workers based in any European country.

Raising awareness among Public Administrations in order to promote and regulate remote work through good practices and recommendations.
