The Right to Disconnect – 1-Hour Webinar
Email and mobile phones have created ease of contact and with it, blurred parameters of working time. Remote working arrangements have highlighted this issue and the need for legislative guidance on the right to disconnect was highlighted in the Government’s National Remote Work Strategy ‘Making Remote Work’ which was published in January this year. In response to the contents of that report, the Workplace Relations Commission published a Code of Practice for Employers and Employees on the Right to Disconnect on 1 April 2021.
This one hour online seminar will enable participants to:
- Understand the law in relation to right to disconnect, the Organisation of Working Time Act 1997, the Safety Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 and the new Code;
- Consider employer obligations with regard to providing a safe system of work and managing working time;
- Learn of employee rights in relation to working time and the right to disconnect;
- Examine the guidelines laid out in the new Code of Practice for employers and employees on the right to disconnect.
- Consider practical mechanisms for the review of current practices and the implementation of best practice
