New French law gives employees right to ignore work emails

French workers can ignore after hours emails- French workers have the legal right to dismiss work emails outside of working hours under the country's new "right to disconnect" law that began Sunday.

Companies with more than 50 employees must establish defined hours when staff are not allowed to send and answer work-related emails. The new law, introduced in May as part of a series of labor laws, was set up to stop employees from working off-the-clock overtime and decrease work-related stress and anxiety. The country already has a federally mandated 35 hour work week, in place since 2000.

TVNL Comment:  German law prohibits employers from contacting employees after work, on weekends an on vacations.
