From January 1, a new employment law will enter into force that obliges organisations with more than 50 workers to start negotiations to define the rights of employees to ignore their smartphones.The French measure is intended to tackle the so-called "always-on" work culture that has led to a surge in usually unpaid overtime – while also giving employees flexibility to work from outside the office.If a deal cannot be reached, the company must publish a charter that would make explicit the demands on and rights of employees out-of-hours.A study published by French research group Eleas in October showed that more than a third of French workers used their devices to do work out of hours every day.Computing and work-life balance expert Anna Cox from University of College London (UCL) says that companies must take into account demands from employees for both protection and flexibility.
