The massive adoption of telework as a means of preventing contagion by Covid-19 has decisively highlighted the problems related to the supervision, organization and limitation of teleworkers' work times. Whilst time flexibility and, potentially, a greater balance between personal and family life figures as the main advantage of teleworking, the reverse means that one of the biggest problems with its use lies in how difficult is the definition of work and rest time, blurring boundaries between the professional and personal life of teleworkers. Therefore, how can the time limits of the telework journey be safeguarded? This dissertation intends to look into the solutions that have been advanced in the domestic and international scenarios and point out some adjustment alternatives to implementing such limits.
