What is the public interest issue to be addressed by this commitment? The coronavirus pandemic overnight forced employers and workers to lockdowns, restrictive measures, with their share of disadvantages on the results of companies and services, namely, increased vulnerability, reduction of normal hours of work and job losses. Teleworking appeared to be a way of working to cope with these constraints. Unfortunately, it is not provided for in the body of law in our country. Therefore, it appears necessary to provide for legislation on teleworking, so that it can fill the void and prevent possible new unforeseen cases and / or exceptional circumstances.

What is the commitment? - Propose a draft ordinance instituting teleworking and supplementing the provisions of the Labor Code. - Propose a draft decree setting out the practical modalities for carrying out teleworking. In terms of results: Allow companies to face exceptional situations with the possibility of resorting to a more flexible mode of work organization. The commitment will consist of: - Transmit the proposed texts to the technical ministries involved; - Have the draft texts examined by the Tripartite Committee to Combat the Impact of Covid-19 on the World of Work - Have the draft texts examined by the Independent Permanent Consultative Commission (CIPC), a bipartite body of employers and workers; 25 - Consolidate and validate the texts in the Consultative Commission of Work (CCT), with a view to obtaining the final opinion of the social partners (employers and workers); - Transmit the draft texts to the General Secretariat of the Government. - Have the draft texts adopted by the National Assembly and the SENATE.

How will commitment contribute to solve the public problem? These texts, once adopted, will ensure business continuity and preserve jobs. Why is this commitment relevant to OGP values? Participation and inclusion: given the different committees that are consulted at each stage. Indeed, this commitment is also the result of the vision of the social partners (employers and workers) and of the Government.

Additional information The supervision of teleworking is linked to: - The National Development Plan 2016-2020 - The National Labor Policy - SDGs 1, 3, 5, 8, 10 & 16
