Colombia: end line in sight for adoption of a bill regulating ‘telework in exceptional circumstances’
Planet Labor, 25 March 2021, n°12436 - www.planetlabor.com

On 23 March on the occasion of its second reading in Senate plenary, almost unanimous approval was given to a bill regulating working at home ‘telework’ under ‘ad hoc, extraordinary or special’ circumstances, and as distinguished from existing legislation that regulates traditional ‘telework’. Having already passed the House of Representatives it must now go before before a committee comprising representatives from both chambers before being enacted.
