Ireland considers taking France’s lead on “switch-off” laws

The Government is currently considering implementing a “switch-off” law for workers who feel digitally connected outside working hours. In 2017, the French government introduced a law that would see employers giving their teams the opportunity to switch off outside of working hours. Minister for Business Heather Humphreys said it would help to improve the nation’s work-life balance. Tools such as RosyBoa help to prevent worker burnout by encouraging productivity and eliminating needless processes.
