The COVID-19 epidemic affected the labour market in an unprecedented way and forced employers and employees to switch to remote work. The idea of home office garnered many supporters, both among employers and employees. Remote work during the epidemic was, in many cases, a necessity, and now it is becoming an opportunity and a choice. Although existing in the previous legislation, provisions on remote work were adjusted in response to and following the epidemic and lockdowns. The relevant amendment to the Labour Code offers employers an opportunity to control the sobriety of employees and control the presence of substances having a similar effect to alcohol. This legal solution had been awaited and proposed by employers’ organisations for several years. The article aims to discuss the most important changes in the amended Labour Code and to indicate challenges that employers are soon to face.
