The Right to Disconnect

The right to disconnect is becoming more challenging to define as employees and employers alike struggle to determine what “working hours” should look like in today’s digital work landscape.

  • Have employees list their working hours

  • Employees need to know exactly what working remotely entails in order to determine whether it would be something they enjoy.
  • Working hours. Is the company offering a flexible working schedule, standardized work hours, or something in-between?
