This empirical paper analyses data gathered from self-employed teleworkers, matching this against teleworking's defining characteristics, which appear in the literature. Our evaluation leads us to question whether the term ‘teleworking’ has lost much of its value in today's working world. We therefore suggest the new term ‘home-anchored worker’ as a less complex and more useful replacement.
