California bosses fined $100 for harassing employees after work

Bosses in California could soon be fined for contacting employees after hours.

The new bill has been proposed by San Francisco politician Matt Haney and if passed would make his state the first in the US to give employees the legal right to ignore non-urgent calls and emails after the day is over. of work.

If the bill becomes law, any employer who violates it could face a fine of at least $100.

Haney, a Democrat, says he was inspired by Australia's new "right to secede" law, which will take effect later this year.

At least 10 other countries, including France, Canada and Portugal, have laws that support "employees' right to disconnect from work".

New York City considered a similar proposal in 2018 but did not approve it.
