For this reason, it is now necessary to consider the future of work arising from the effects of the pandemic starting with two possible scenarios: 1) The pandemic, as a catalyst, may accelerate the current transformation of working life; or, 2) The pandemic may have positive or negative significant effects for the future of work.
