The teleworker has the same rights as the employee who works on site in company premises. So what are the conditions for awarding meal vouchers for teleworkers? The Ministry of Labor provides details in its question and answer devoted to teleworking updated on October 22, 2020.
Since employees working in company premises benefit from meal vouchers, teleworkers must also receive them if their working conditions are equivalent. The meal should be included in their daily work schedule. For example, a teleworker receives one meal voucher per day worked if his working day extends from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The employer can define certain criteria for awarding meal vouchers, provided that they are objective, that is to say applicable to both teleworkers and employees working on site. For example, it may decide to distribute meal vouchers depending on the distance from the workplace to the home because the distance between the work and the employee’s accommodation is an objective criterion.
A collective labor agreement, existing or to be negotiated, could provide for specific modalities for allocating meal vouchers, ensuring a teleworking organization method that takes into account the specific situation of each activity, each department and each employee. But he must then absolutely respect the principle of equal treatment between the employee who performs his work remotely and the one who performs it on site.
