The Economy, Infrastructure and Skills Committee is undertaking a short inquiry into the implications for Wales of the Welsh Government’s proposals on remote working.
Following changes in behaviour seen during the COVID-19 pandemic the Welsh Government is aiming to “work with organisations to support a long term shift to more people working remotely.” It has defined remote working as “working outside of a traditional office or ‘central’ place of work.” This would include “working at home and close to home in your local community”. The Welsh Government has stated that it would like to have 30% of workers in Wales working remotely on a regular basis over the long term, but highlights that this is “not a target and no requirements will be put upon organisations and employers.”
The ‘Legally Disabled?’ team submitted a response to this Inquiry, based on the evidence gained from our research before and during the Covid-19 pandemic.
