    “Happy with the progress in the commission of teleworking abroad. It is important to regulate this figure so that people who want to do so can do so from another country,” said the deputy.“That would help in case they have the possibility of studying in another country and continuing to work in Costa Rica,” he added.

    The text ruled by the legislative body is clear in detailing that the worker who wishes to opt for teleworking abroad must provide himself with the technological instruments, equipment and programs required for his functions.

    In addition, he/she must assume the costs of occupational hazard insurance and any additional insurance required for teleworking from outside Costa Rica.If it is the company or institution that makes the decision, it must assume the obligations and provide all the necessary tools.After the ruling, the file now goes to the Plenary to schedule it so that it can be discussed and voted on.
