It is also recommendable to specify the place or places of work in the employment contract, in particular where the employee is required to undertake his/her work at various locations. This avoids confusion as to the location of the employee’s actual place of work and the place(s) for which e.g. travel costs accrue.
The work may also be agreed to be undertaken entirely or partly as distance work, usually from the employee’s home. As a starting point distance work is subject to normal regulations applicable to standard employment relationships. However, the Working Hours Act is not applicable to distance work or other work undertaken independently [Working Hours].
