Authors:  Becky P.Y. Loo (The University of Hong Kong, Pokfulam, Hong Kong)
In this book, E-working refers to working away from the traditional workplace for a substantial proportion of one‟s work time with the support of e-technologies. In other words, e-working implies neither the total replacement of the traditional workplace nor an elimination of the journey to work. The definition of a substantial proportion of one‟s work time does not necessarily imply a fixed working schedule, say every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at the traditional work place, and working at home or other designated locations on other work days. Workers are defined as people who are earning income and are, therefore, gainfully employed. In other words, self-employment and people running home-based businesses are eligible for e-working (see also Future Foundation, 2005). These workers are sometimes known as “contract” rather than “employee” e-workers (WorldatWork, 2009). To distinguish the traditional workplace from the actual workplace, the latter is often called the alternative workplace. Given the flexibility of e-technologies, alternative workplaces are multifarious, including home offices, tele-cottages, teleports, remote centers, cars, commuter trains, hotels or other locations.
