199. STRAIGHT TO VOICEMAIL: the right to disconnect from work

Hello! How can we properly switch off from work in an era of phones, email and remote working? We’re exploring the ‘right to disconnect’ — the idea that people should have a right to disengage from messages and calls outside of their working hours. Professor Anna Cox explains the importance of work-life boundaries. Andrew Pakes from the Prospect Union tells us what a right to disconnect could look like. And Caroline Sauvajol-Rialland talks us through what we can learn from France.
