This publication aims to point out the importance of remote work and the role it plays in modern society. In discussing its growing importance in the world of work, the authors draw on the experience of Brazil and the changes introduced in the labor law in 2017. The regulation recognized this new model of work, connecting millions of workers and confirmed that we now live in a digital and cyber age. The conclusions of this article point to the need to think about the implementation of the green labor contract as a support for the realization of climate justice and how telecommuting can contribute to this new path of work. Remote work is an expression of progress; it is a new legal, normative, economic, and social pathway. The new regulations are already a new type of employment relationship for employees and employers that democratizes the work scenario, which should contribute to solving socio-environmental issues. This contribution will take place in the legal field, in the doctrinal, jurisprudential and legal perspective, as well as in the social field, bringing many benefits to workers.
