The national audience sets that the time used to move home to teleworking must be recovered

The National Hearing (AN) has established that the time employing workers to move home from the Office for TeleTrabajar must recover, according to the sentence to which Europe Press has had.

In this way, the audience has failed in favor of the Summary Insurance Company, defendant by UGT, because it forces its employees to extend their schedule to compensate for the time they investd on the way back home in the afternoon to teleworking, according to the afternoon. Publish this Wednesday 'the confidential'.

The company established a hybrid model temporarily for the return to the office. The staff had to go to the office only half a day and the rest of the day was made remotely using the time of food for the displacement back home.

So, from the company they understood that the "delays" in the incorporation of work after food had the consideration of work time to recover and forced to recover this time before the daily day end.

The measure, agreed with CCOO, was rejected by UGT, according to the ruling. The union alleged that the displacement at home should be assimilated as an effective work time and that the change was a modification of workers' labor conditions. Since the company and UGT did not reach an agreement as stipulated by law, the union required compensation of 12,500 euros.

The AN has dismissed the demand of UGT, since it understands that it is a temporary measure due to the health situation and that from the Company they tried to agree with the unions.

In the same way, the AN explains that the business decision "has tried to combine the obligation to adopt the measures imposed by the regulations of the alarm state with the regulations for the prevention of occupational risks that the employer is required."

Likewise, the national audience estimates that "there is no substantial modification of working conditions, the right to freedom of association or recognize any compensation for damages" is not violated.
