Petition N°2384, which seeks to introduce two days of working from home per week, received a whopping 13,892 signatures.

MPs will discuss the petition on 25 January at 10.30am, after its previous postponement from 30 November.

MPs from the Labour, Employment and Social Security Committee as well as members of the Finance and Budget along with the Petitions Committee will discuss the subject with petitioner Katia Sabrina Litim.

Home office would "significantly reduce traffic jams and improve the well-being of employees by improving their work-life balance", Litim argued. The petition also acknowledges that home office is not a solution for everybody, and thus "it is time to find the right balance between the two worlds".

The debate, which will be live-streamed on ChamberTV and on the website, will also be open to the public.
