Ontario to propose ‘right-to-disconnect’ laws

I’m not so sure that Ontario employers need any more legislation, but those with over 25 staff could be required to implement “right to disconnect” standards in the very near future.  Take a read of the article below for more information.

Ontario employers will soon be required to create right-to-disconnect policies for their workplaces, in an effort to address the ills of “hyper-connectivity.”

Legislation expected to be introduced this week will, if passed, require workplaces with more than 25 employees to develop internal right-to-disconnect standards. The move would make Ontario the first province in Canada to implement such a measure.
