Issues covered: Right to Disconnect

In this webinar recording, Caroline McEnery, Managing Director of The HR Suite and HR and Employment Law Expert, joins Rolanda Markey from Legal Island to discuss the HR implications of the new code of practice on the right to disconnect. In particular, Caroline focuses on:

  • The Organisation of Working Time Act and the right to disconnect
  • Do policies need updated in light of this.
  • Do HR staff need to coach managers to ensure compliance with the code.
  • What about remote/agile workers and the right to disconnect.
  • What about peaks and troughs in workload – are there exceptions for this.
  • What if someone is happy to work extra hours or respond to emails outside normal hours.
