    Ignoring work calls and emails after hours could soon become a legal right in Australia as political momentum grows to ensure people can unplug and unwind

    Ignoring work calls and emails after hours could soon become a legal right in Australia as political momentum grows to ensure people can unplug and unwind


    A federal parliamentary inquiry has broadly examined workplace laws including the ability of Australians to disconnect.

    In a report, the Senate committee says one aspect of work-life balance that needs to be protected in the modern industrial context is the right to disconnect from our workplaces outside regulated hours.

    The Work and Care committee has recommended the Fair Work Act be amended to legislate the right to disconnect, drawing sharp criticism from business groups.
