The Uruguayan Parliament approved on 10 August the draft law regulating telework. The Chamber of Senators ratified, with 18 of the 27 possible votes, the modifications made in the Chamber of Representatives to the original text, which was already discussed and approved in October 2020. Both the National Party (centre-right) and Cabildo Abierto (right) defended the bill. On the other side, Senator Eduardo Bonomi, of the opposition Frente Amplio, agreed with the need to regulate telework, although he expressed his disagreement with the form. His bloc considered that this regulation was "very weak" and that, if badly applied, it could "make employment even more precarious because it makes the working day too flexible". The text approved in Uruguay recognises that teleworking is voluntary and always by agreement between both parties, that the employee may divide working hours according to his or her needs, that he or she has the right to disconnect, and that the employer must provide the necessary equipment for remote activity, as well as maintenance in the event of any possible deterioration.
