Abstract


Contingency theory is used to investigate legal and regulatory constraints on telework practices. This literature review provides an important resource that helps bridge the gap between academic insight and human resources consultants’ application in the establishment of telework practices that are in conformance with these rules. This literature review aims to discuss the Legal and regulatory issues associated with telework, which are: (1) employment status of teleworking employees, (2) safe and healthy workplaces, (3) the Fair Labor Standards Act, (4) teleworkers with disabilities, (5) intellectual property protections, (6) environmental impacts of telework, (7) teleworkers’ privacy, and (8) telework regulations in the international setting.

Keywords: Telework, Employer, Employee, Consultant, Legal contingency, Regulation, Workplace, Workers.
