Abstract

Telework is an increasingly popular flexible working arrangement. The features that characterize telework are presented in this work. The advantages and disadvantages of teleworking are described, as well as its effect on the health of the worker. In general, empirical evidence seems to show a positive association between telework and worker health. However, it can also have negative impacts on health such as stress and depression. We propose a framework of analysis of the effect of telework on health that draws on contributions from health economics and from occupational psychology.
