Right to disconnect: ensuring a fair work-life balance

The “right to disconnect” is about defining how technology affects us and ensuring a fair work-life balance. It builds on our values of ensuring that flexibility works for workers as well as employers. In some countries they have legislated to encourage this approach, in other places unions have negotiated for better working conditions. 

Prospect has launched a new guide (below) which looks at different approaches to the “right to disconnect” and how we can ensure unions are involved in safeguarding workers’ well-being and rights as new technology changes how we work.
