What have we learned from teleworking?
Remote working days are easily filled with video conferences, while the telephone, e-mail and team tools stay busy. Many people take care of their children and remote school activities alongside their own work. Does it sound familiar? The daily life with coronavirus has revolutionised working, leisure, social contacts, and family life. We now need support and advice from each other to fit them together and adapt to the new normal.

The effects of the Emergency Powers Act on employment relationship
The Finnish Government passed the commissioning decree for the Emergency Powers Act to Parliament on 17 March 2020. The Emergency Powers Act and the commissioning decrees related thereto will remain in force for a fixed period until 13 April 2020. Competent authorities will enforce the decisions in accordance with their powers. By virtue of the Emergency Powers Act, the Council of State passed on 17 March 2020 a decree concerning working hours, annual holidays and period of notice when an employee gives a notice of termination.
The provisions of the Emergency Powers Act and the commissioning decree concern employees working in health care, social services, rescue services, emergency centre operations, and police. The provisions on compulsory work orders only concern the health care sector and persons with health care education. If a person is working in those branches, the Emergency Powers Act and the commissioning decree may have effects on such person’s employment relationship.
