Teleworking and coworking (map)
In France, new forms of work are emerging.
Employees are always more interested in teleworking (also called telecommuting, which means working for a company but not from the office) which is offered by many companies. Wage conditions and working hours are defined by law. For more information, read this article.
Teleworkers are not freelance workers, they are employed by a company.
Coworking spaces allow many people (employees, freelance workers, start-uppers…) to work together in a common place. The premises are usually managed by private companies. To find a coworking space close to where you live, have a look at coworking-carte.fr.
