Author(s) Adesh Kumar Singh

Abstract In the rapidly evolving landscape of remote work in India, there is a pressing need to navigate the legal challenges inherent in this shift. This article delves into the intricacies of the rights of remote workers within the Indian legal framework, aiming to offer insightful analyses and viable solutions. The article explores the dynamic nature of remote employment, particularly amidst the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Remote work, a burgeoning trend accelerated by global circumstances, presents both opportunities and hurdles for workers and employers alike. Despite its prevalence, remote work lacks specific regulation under Indian law, posing challenges in areas such as contractual agreements, labor disputes, and worker protections. These challenges are compounded by the absence of clear guidelines and monitoring mechanisms, leading to concerns over productivity, work-life balance, and mental health.
To address these complexities, the article advocates for the establishment of comprehensive regulations tailored to the nuances of remote work. Emphasizing objective-based performance assessments, flexible work arrangements, and safeguards for worker well-being, it underscores the importance of adapting legal frameworks to accommodate the evolving nature of employment relationships. By navigating these legal challenges and implementing effective solutions, India can foster a more equitable and sustainable remote work environment, ensuring the protection of workers' rights in the digital age.
Keywords Remote work, worker protections, Legal challenges, Workers' rights, work-life balance.
