The modalities will be defined within the framework of social dialogue in companies,
” she added after a weekly meeting on Covid-19 with employers' and trade union organizations.
This relaxation will only be possible "
if the health situation allows it
There will be a second milestone on January 20, also if the health situation allows it: we would give the hand to the social partners to define in the social dialogue a minimum number of working days
", she added.
She recalled that unions (CFDT, FO, CFE-CGC and CFTC, except CGT) and employers (Medef, CPME and U2P) agreed at the end of November to sign a national inter-professional agreement (ANI) on teleworking.
In this context, "
it could be entrusted to the employer to define a minimum number of days of teleworking per week
", indicated the ministry.
Since the end of October, the corporate health protocol has imposed teleworking as a rule, specifying that it must be “
increased to 100% for employees who can perform all of their tasks remotely
The health protocol will be updated again "
at the beginning of next year, to ensure that the health situation does not show any deterioration
", said the minister.
There are no further relaxations planned, according to Borne.
