In the conditions of digitalization, along with standard forms of labor organization (individual and collective), other forms are becoming more widespread: remote and home-based work, as well as work on the flexible working hours. The introduction of remote work within quarantine measures, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, has become a mandatory step in order to preserve the health of workers and ensure uninterrupted work. It requires the formation and implementation of a legal mechanism labor relations and control. The purpose of this study has development of scientifically substantiated proposals and recommendations on transformational changes of the mechanism of public control over observance of the legislation on work and health care, to open features of functioning of components of such mechanism in the conditions of remote work. To achieve the goal of the study, the methodological principles and approaches of legal science were used. The analysis showed that in general the current legislation provides for a number of powers related to the control of trade unions over compliance with labor legislation and the adoption of measures to protect the rights of workers. A positive innovation is the distinction between remote and home work. In order to improve the legal regulation of trade union powers, it is proposed to improve the legal regulation of the collective bargaining sector, to introduce an effective mechanism for trade unions to join the current system of social partnership acts, which will attract new forces to the trade union movement.
