The German government is preparing to publish a draft law that would grant employees the legal right to work from home.

It’s an unusually progressive initiative — and lent immediacy by the coronavirus pandemic — that’s meant to support workers and grant them a better work-life balance, according to the World Economic Forum. By legally enforcing workers’ choice to work remotely whenever possible, Germany could serve as a giant experiment in how jobs will function even after it’s safe to be around others again.
