Australian workers granted right to disconnect after-hours in groundbreaking move

Australia is poised to revolutionize work-life balance with proposed laws granting employees the power to ignore after-hours calls and messages sans repercussions. This “right to disconnect” initiative, part of sweeping industrial relations reforms, aims to safeguard workers’ well-being while challenging the pervasive culture of non-stop connectivity.

As Australia marches towards empowering its workforce, the stage is set for a pivotal showdown between labor rights and corporate interests. Unlock the full story for insights into this transformative legislation.
