Prior to the information and communication technology revolution, homeworking was largely marginalized, feminised, and often exploitative, manual labour. However, technology has driven dramatic increases in the number of people worldwide who are now working at home, in a range of skilled and professional occupations, either full time (especially the self employed and consultants) or for a proportion of the working week, the remainder taking place at a central workplace or other location. For example, in the UK and in Sweden, around one quarter of the workforce works at home for some period of the week (Felstead, Jewson, Phizacklea and Walters, 2000; Wikstrom et al, 1998). This growth is reflected in a change of terminology, from home workers to teleworkers, telecommuters, distributed workers (Wikstrom et al, 1998) or location independent workers. Although there is some debate about the definition of each of these terms (Sullivan, 1997), the term teleworker in this paper, refers to those who work from home using Information and Communication Technologies (ICT's) for at least part of the week. Thus the family home also becomes a workplace.
