    Average life span in Europe has increased by more than average pension age. Most of the pension age people have preserved their work ability. This has raised the percentage of younger pensioners compared to the working population. In many countries young people are in a situation where they have to or want to postpone their employment. This phenomenon leads to difficulties in paying pensions. Scientists in many countries are looking for ways to increase the employment in senior workforce. One of the solutions can be teleworking. Telework has become almost a normal part of white-collar workersí work style. Telework can also provide better working conditions for people with disabilities and young mothers to increase their employment and help them feel useful in society. Telework has not been scientifically widely studied and results of previous research vary.
