France now has a law against after-hours emails to employees. Does this make sense to you? Could you get your work done on this basis? Is that question your concern, or is it up to the employer to organize your time more effectively?
Can such a law apply to professionals or others who do not punch a clock?
Are the benefits worth the inconvenience … given that the benefits go to the employees and the inconvenience to the employers, to a large extent.
When France legislated its 35-hour week, over 15 years ago, one consequence was that people had a harder time connecting with others, since the others simply weren’t there as reliably. That may have settled down over time.
Can it/should it happen here?
