Just been reading the news on the Beeb site. Came across this article: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-36249647 It tells the story of the French government voting on giving employees the right to "disconnect" from work emails, either receiving or sending. I think it raises a valid point. I worked for a web agency some years ago and the workload was unbelievable. We were expected to work at our desks and continue with dealing with calls and emails whilst on our "breaks". We were also expected to take out of hours calls and emails from clients, for which we were not paid or even thanked. The company was breaking working regulations with the expectation that we would work during our breaks but I don't think they were breaking any regulations on their expectation that we deal with comms out of hours. I think the issue of being permanently connected in today's digital world is presenting issues like this, there does seem to be employers who are willing to take advantage of that with employees being the ones who suffer.
