The Aussie paper is behind a subscription wall.
Certain French citizens are being forced to power down when the work day is over, meaning employers must leave workers alone once they go home.
According to The Australian, a new French labor deal -- which is a legally binding deal signed by employers' federations and unions representing workers in the digital and consultancy sectors -- says that employees are to shut off work devices and avoid work emails after going home for the day.
The ruling applies to all companies in the technology and consultancy sectors.
Well I hope that France doesn't need to contact Silicon Valley for any tech issues that must be fixed...ahh come back in the morning and realize that you lost another day because the engineers asked you a question that you couldn't answer til the next morning. And then if Engineer in Cali has left for the day....another day with down servers, network, whatever....hhahahahaha.....
reminds me of the Looney Tunes skit where the coyote and sheepdog clock out when the horn sounds, no matter what was going on. And then continue from the exact situation the next morning.
