The Brazilian labour code, the so-called CLT, defines “telework” as the provision of services preponderantly outside the employer’s premises, with the use of information and communication technology that, by its nature, does not constitute external work.

Article 75 of the CLT says: “…the attendance at the premises of the employer to carry out specific activities that require the presence of the employee at the establishment does not affect the existence of the telework regime.”
