Abstract. The current situation creates an optimal legal space for the renaissance of home office and telework for the coming years. The expansion of the material personal scope of home office and telework is fundamentally influenced by new technologies and the related digitization of work processes. A more massive expansion of the legal space for a broader understanding of home office and telework was also created by the abnormal situation associated with the coronavirus pandemics, to which the amendment to the Labour Code of 2. 4. 2020 responded. Author analyses the new labour law regulation of performing work from home under the influence of the coronavirus pandemics and, at the same time, she analyses the existing legal status of the general regulation of home office and telework provided in § 52 of the Labour Code. Through the analysis of foreign legal regulations as well as the anchoring of these institutes in the international law and in the EU law, she proposes ways to improve the legal model of home office and telework existing in the Slovak labour law regulation.

Key words: homeoffice, telework, working time, obstacles to work, occupational safety and health
