Netherlands: Work from Home will be made a legal right

The legislation making work from home a legal right was passed on July 5, 2022, by the lower House of Dutch Parliament. The implementation of this law requires the approval of the Dutch Senate. If passed by the Dutch Senate, the Netherlands will become one of the first countries to legalize working from home. According to the law, employers must consider an employee's request for telework if their profession permits it. Employers need to give adequate reasons for refusing request for work from home.


Employers in the Netherlands need to keep an eye on approval of the legislation by Dutch Senate and modify the employment policies to accommodate the same, once implemented.
