Making Remote Work

18 January 2021 



The Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment Leo Varadkar TD, today (Friday, 15 January) published Ireland’s first National Remote Work Strategy to make remote working a permanent option for life after the pandemic.

The Strategy sets out plans to strengthen the rights and responsibilities of employers and employees, to provide the infrastructure to work remotely, and sets out clear guidance on how people can be empowered to work remotely from the office. 

The increase in home working as a result of COVID-19 has brought remote working to the forefront of working life. Though the adoption of remote work was already increasing in Ireland, COVID-19 has greatly accelerated this trend making remote work a central part of the workplace today and into the future.
