Say What Now? It Is Now Illegal to Check Work Email After 6pm in France


It’s good to be an employee in France right now.

Unions and employers in France have come to an agreement that employees will no longer check their work-related email before 9 a.m. or after 6 p.m.

The deal, which is legally binding, upholds the spirit of the 35-hour work week that France implemented in 1999.

We wonder how this affects those who work best during the night hours. Our emails come in all day and all night — while not legally being able to answer them might be nice, our productivity would surely suffer.

Is this something you’d like to see for America?
