Abstract. The amendment to the Labour Code, which entered into force on 1 March 2021, brought about fundamental changes in the legal regulation of domestic work and telework. It changed not only the concept of domestic work and telework, its positive and negative definition, but also the content of domestic work. For the employers, the amendment to the Labour Code extended the scope of legal obligations and for the employees the scope of subjective rights. The rights and obligations of the employee and the employer in the performance of domestic work or telework depend mainly on the way of organizing working time. If the working time of domestic work or telework is scheduled by the employer, his/her interference in the way the employee performs work is significantly wider than in the scheduling of working time by the employee himself/herself, for which there are more deviations compared to the performance of „standard“ employment. In addition to their positive effects, new technologies and related digital forms of work have begun to blur the differences between an employee‘s work and family life. Therefore, for the first time, the legislator has regulated the employee‘s right to „disconnect“.
