We are living in a world where every second sees 2,603,135 sent emails; 7,670 tweets; 2,655 Skype calls; 69,862 YouTube videos; 790 Instagram photos and 46,139 GB of internet traffic (according to Internet Live Stats).Although this advanced digital era has made us very interconnected globally, easing our daily life in many ways, it's creating a "digital tyranny" in a ferocious way to the extent that life in the 21st century becomes inhumanly unappealing. This right gives legality to French employees to avoid work emails or messages during nonworking hours, knowing that the working hours in France are set to 35 per week since 2000 .A 2015 report by U.K.'s Future Work Centre filed that people who check and/or respond to emails and messages in off-hours tend to have higher stress and less work-life satisfaction. It found that work pressure negatively affects home life and in reverse home life negatively affecting work performance. Today, companies in France with more than 50 employees are legally compelled to stop emailing workers outside of business hours.Despite the importance of legislating this right at the policy level, what is more needed is to change the work culture in the mindsets of people, making them realize that productivity is linked to "smart work" not "hard work" and ultimately create the right environment for that.
