French workers can now legally ignore after-hours work emails

French workers can just say “non” to emails from their boss when they’re off the clock, thanks to a new law that took effect Sunday.

The “right to disconnect” law gives employees the legal right to ignore work-related emails after normal hours. The law applies to all companies with more than 50 employees, and the companies must come up with codes of conduct outlining the hours between which workers are free from sending or replying to work emails.
