Germany Might Ban Work Emails After 6 p.m. and on Weekends
Checking emails after work hours is so bad for you that Germany is considering passing a law that would ban it altogether. The country’s Labor Minister has been looking over the results of a study that examined the pressures of work life. As it turns out, the long hours and constant access to work aren’t good for your health. So, she wants Germany to follow in the footsteps of France, which has already banned work after 6 p.m. The law wouldn’t be put in place until 2016, but in the meantime, workers can use a self-control app to block access to work-related projects.
