New rights for employees with children

Employees with dependent children up to the age of 11 are entitled, upon request, to 4 days per month of home or telecommuting work, in accordance with the provisions of Law no. 81/2018 on the regulation of telecommuting. These provisions do not apply to situations where the nature or type of work does not allow work to be carried out under such conditions.

If both parents or legal representatives are employees, an affidavit will also be required from the other parent or legal representative stating that he/she has not requested to work from home or telecommute for the same period.

An affidavit from the other parent or legal representative is not required if the parent or legal representative is in one of the  situations in the Law.

In addition, by way of derogation from the provisions of Law no. 81/2018 on the regulation of telecommuting activities, the employees covered by this law who are to work at home or telecommute are required to have all the means necessary to perform their duties according to their job description.

The above provisions applies since July 2023.

In view of the legislative changes presented, we recommend adapting the Internal Regulations and internal policies to include the new legislative changes and to establish specific procedures, as well as to assess the number of employees to whom these provisions apply and to evaluate the impact of these regulations on the flow of employees required to carry out the activity at the offices or workplaces.

If you are looking for expert legal advice to successfully implement the new provisions mentioned above and ensure compliance with the legislative changes, we encourage you to seek Grecu Partners specialists at or by phone 031.426.0745.
