More and more governments are prohibiting post-work communication
Good news for Portuguese workers! Employers can no longer contact their staff outside work hours - whether by phone, email, or message. In a new law passed by the country's Parliament, it will now be illegal for employers to contact their people outside of regulated hours – ignoring the law could result in a fine. They’re also prohibited from monitoring their staff while working from home. The new law is part of the of the government's latest attempt to improve work-life balance.
