ABSTRACT Features of telecommuting can contribute to both increasing and decreasing worker stress. This study aimed to identify stress predictors, in terms of advantages and disadvantages of telecommuting, psychosocial demands and resources related to work and work-home interaction between employees from Federal Court of Rio Grande do Sul who develop telecommuting. The 130 participants answered: the questionnaire of demographic and laboral data, perceived stress scale, advantages and disadvantages of telecommuting, psychosocial demands and resources related to work, perceived self-efficacy and work-home interaction. Multivariate linear regression analysis identified a stress predicted model composed of the variables of negative work-family and work-family interactions, self-efficacy and overload. Results point out risk and protection factors related to stress among teleworkers. It is important to highlight the need for national labor legislation to regulate teleworking, to configure it in a more concrete way, allowing actions to aim at workers' health
