The Spanish Council of Ministers approved a new law on remote work in Spain, requiring employers to provide additional compensation for general costs associated with working from home. The Spanish remote work law, aims to ensure fairness between remote and office-based employees.

The law stipulates that an employer should compensate employees for all costs associated with remote employment, including internet, telephone, and electricity reimbursements. This would be a fee that is paid on top of the employee’s salary.
