Homeworking has necessarily exploded since the COVID-19 pandemic took a grip on the world, from around 260 million people in 2019, to some 580 million in 2020.

A new ILO report, released on Wednesday, lays out the penalties paid by those now having to work from home, which include higher health risks, lower wages, and social isolation.

Sergei Soares, a labour economist at the ILO,  explained to Conor Lennon from UN News that the impetus behind the report was the fact that very few countries have ratified the ILO’s Home Work Convention.
