Teleworking is an arrangement where an employee (teleworker) is allowed to work at home.

Telework occurs when information and communications technologies (telephone, fax, or internet) are applied to enable work to be done at a distance from the place where the work results are needed or where the work would conventionally have been done.

A teleworker is different from a home worker as he/she has greater control over his/her skills, and means of production and labor.
