    During the Covid pandemic, people all over the world were working from home. This concept endured even after on-site work resumed because many realised the advantages of working from home, especially in the Netherlands which had the highest rate of work-from-home employees in all EU member states, even before the pandemic.

    Dutch lawmakers recently proposed a "Work Where You Want" regulation that, if accepted by parliament, will require all employers with a staff of ten or more to accept all remote work requests, if specific criteria are met. This is in a bid to legally support and protect the rights of all workers– even remote workers. If the bill is accepted and adopted by the Senate it could take effect by 1 Jan 2023.

    The Netherlands will be one of the first countries to legally accept flexible working conditions as legislation. Other European countries are exploring similar strategies.
