This chapter compiles information on the current incidence of teleworking in Argentina, especially that related to the form of organization of the work, and the work-life balance of teleworkers. Sources include data from the National Institute of Statistics and Censuses (INDEC), interviews with companies, articles in newspapers and journals, academic theses and surveys. Teleworking is very new in Argentina; only 2.7 per cent of all workers work away from their employer’s premises. This chapter addresses the different psychological risks factors that this new work model can entail, such as the health effects triggered by longer and atypical work hours. Conversely, it also covers the possible benefits teleworking can have, including control and independence in work, a better work–life balance and greater flexibility.
