The independent union of public employees (Asdyk) has called on the finance ministry to write into law protections for public sector workers who wish to work from home.

The union said that the development of remote working for public sector workers will bring “only advantages”.

Following the drafting of a new bill regarding remote working in the private sector, which is currently being discussed in parliament, the union is asking why such provisions have not yet been made for those working in the public sector.

The union called for a law regarding public sector remote working to be tabled before parliament prior to the start of the summer recess.
