Why You Soon May Not Have To Answer Email Or Phone Calls After Work.

posted by Carolyn McArdle - 

We told you last year about the bill that went into effect in France where employers could be fined $250 if they make their employees answer phone calls or emails outside of their set work hours.

In New York City, a  "right to disconnect" bill is on the ballot and it’s exactly like what passed in France.

Companies with at least 10 employees would be required to provide staff with a notice of their right not to respond to after-hours communications, and if that employee is fired for not answering a work email after hours, they could receive $2,500 and possibly get their job back.
