Summary/Abstract: The main aim of this article is to identify telework as a source of dehumanization with special focus on home telework. This article presents a research problem: is a company or another type of institution, in which all or part of its work organization relies on telework a healthy organization? The text characterizes the main elements of telework that negatively affect teleworkers and their families. The general conclusion is that in its present form home telework is not conducive to creating a healthy organization. This article offers some recommendations for humanizing telework. The main recommendation is that employers and their associations, workers and organizations protecting their rights, scientists, and teleworkers themselves should make every effort to civilize and humanize home telework and mixed forms of work organization, which include telework.
