The right to disconnect – sticking plaster or silver bullet?

Across the pond in Europe, it’s getting more and more likely that there will be a EU-wide expectation (backed up by law), that employees have a ‘right to disconnect’. In fact, members of the EU want this right to be as fundamental to the workplace as the right to have proper holidays, fair pay or basic health and safety. Last year MEPs voted 472 in favor (versus 126 against), for the EU Commission to propose a law that enables those who work digitally to disconnect outside their working hours.
