New French Law Makes It Illegal To Email Employees After Work Hours | GOOD
The new law stipulates that companies negotiate policies that limit the spillover of work into their employees’ private lives.
“if you’re a company of 50 employees or more, you cannot email an employee after typical work hours. The amendment has come about because studies show that in the digital age it’s become increasingly difficult for people to distance themselves from the workplace during their off hours. This new law allows people to get the full advantage of their time off.”
A French lawmaker said that even after employees leave work, they cannot unplug and remain attached by an “electronic leash – like a dog.”
The French public like this idea! Do you think this could work in the U.S.?
