The #Right2Disconnect: A right or an imposition?

Are you working to live or live to work? That is the question in today’s day and age. 

It is common to see employees answering emails and work out of established working hours. It is normal for many employees within Europe to be in a perpetual state of connectedness to their work. 

This 24/7 working culture is detrimental to employees mental health and the development of their personal life. The #Right2Disconnect must be respected for all employees. 

On the 5th of December, in the European Parliament, we will be tackling this important right, and the need to officially legislate. 

For this event, we count with the participation of several MEPs that will guide the debate on this interesting topic.
