The Special Economic Zone Rules, 2006 (SEZ Rules) offer specific guidelines on working from home (WFH) for employees of Information Technology Services (IT) and Information Technology Enabled Services (ITeS) SEZ units for specific situations such as employees being temporarily incapacitated, or travelling or working offsite.
