New York City may pass a law making it illegal for employers to require employees to check work email outside regular work hours. Research suggests workers are emotionally exhausted from anticipating messages from work when they get home. A new bill in New York City aims to protect workers' "right to disconnect." If the boss is found guilty, they would have to pay a fine of up to $500 to the employee. New York wouldn't be the first city to pass this type of law. In 2017, for example, France passed a law that lets employees ignore emails outside working hours. The German company Volkswagen switches off their email servers late at night to "respect relaxation time."
