Do Aussies have a "right to disconnect" after work?

 

An Australian workplace has changed the rules so their bosses can't force them to do any work after hours.

Karen Gately interviewed on Triple J Hack. They unpacked "the right to disconnect". Refer to the ABC article below to see what that means 👇 Basically, because of remote working, lots of employees are working well beyond 9-5 hours.

The right to disconnect – won in the union's most recent negotiations – directs managers to respect leave and rest days and avoid contacting officers outside work hours, unless in an emergency or to check on their welfare.

We feel like we can't switch off as we live in our workplace.

So how do we fix that?

Is the "always-on" culture here to stay?
