Working for a business is a fast-growing route to remote employment in Spain, which has been accelerating since the pandemic.
Prior to the Covid lockdowns, remote employment in Spain was lagging behind much of Europe. Large employers were not keen on the practice, and most remote and flexible people tended to choose self employment instead. The office culture was ingrained, and telecommuniting a rarity.
All that changed of course when everyone had to work from home. Employers had proof itcould be done, and lots of people enjoyed it too! But there were problems due to structural inequalities, and old habits die hard.
That meant the law had to catch up, and new regulations on the rights of remote workers arrived in the autumn of 2020… Regulations that many firms considered restrictive and unhelpful.
