France’s ‘Right to Disconnect’ Law Isn’t All It’s Cracked Up to Be

January 4, 2017-01-14

Jan. 4, 2017

 

In a country famous for languid vacations and generous retirement, the French government this week made its first attempt to rein in a familiar scourge of modern work life: the always-on email blitz. Even in Paris, where people pride themselves on letting loose after the workday, smartphones sit buzzing in cafés at night, as people juggle late-hour demands from the office.

Now, in theory, those phones should fall silent, since French workers now have a new “right to disconnect.” The new law, which came into effect on January 1, allows employees in companies of more than 50 people to ignore emails after work hours, a move the government says will “ensure the respect of rest time and vacation, as well as personal and family life.”

Reams of laws and regulations have proliferated over the years, governing watertight protections against being fired, as well as ensuring five-week annual vacation leave and 35-hour workweeks — benefits that U.S. can only dream of. The retirement age rose from 62 to 67 in 2008, only after months of violent street battles, with protesters—many in their twenties—saying they were determined to maintain their right to leisure.

But companies say the huge number of digital devices is subtly changing the work culture in France—as everywhere. Several managers say they detect a kind of work-creep among their staff, who arrive at work in the mornings stressed out and under-slept.

“Today the digital tools are blurring the boundary between personal and professional lives,” Bruno Mettling, human resources director of the French telecom giant Orange, wrote in a report for the government before the new law came into effect. “With this accumulation of emails, and these employees who return exhausted from the weekend because they have not disconnected, it is not the best way to be effective in companies.”

Managers at the insurance company Allianz France, with about 10,000 employees, are under orders not to send work emails after 6 p.m., or to organize staff meetings in the late afternoon.

The cut-off time for staff emails is 7 p.m. at KEDGE Business School, which has seven campuses in France. After that, an automatic email lets employees know the email is “out of schedule,” and so can wait until the next workday begins. KEDGE Director Thomas Froehlicher told the French news site Rue89 last week that after the school regards the overuse of emails “like an addiction,” and occasionally “an abuse,” which could be reported to the human resources department.

Remember- the Internet never forgets!

A recent survey by Microsoft finds three-quarters of American recruiters and human resources professionals perform online searches into the activities of potential employees.

Most people have learned - some the hard way - that the lnternet's memory makes elephants look forgetful.

"The Internet makes everyone a public figure," says Michael Fertik, CEO of the online image management firm ReputationDefender, of which an estimated 97% of clients are ordinary citizens.

"Even if you don't put a lot of stuff about yourself online, someone else is doing it for you ... So you either do something about it, or learn to live with it."

Fertik's customers pay his company anywhere from $4 per month to $1,000 per year to help manage persona! Google search results, remove their names from corporate databases, perform online damage-control, and closely monitor their Internet footprints.

Because someone, somewhere, will be following that same electronic trail in deciding whether they want those people as co-workers, students, or even

Saturday-night dates.

A recent survey by Microsoft, for instance, finds three-quarters of American recruiters and human resources professionals perform online searches into the activities of potential employees.

The Internet startup Klout will analyze a person's social influence and authority based on their Twitter account. Pipl scours online photos, public records, court documents, academic journals and forum postings to reveal a person's "deep-web" history.

Even a basic Facebook search can turn up surprisingly intimate results, with many users having inadvertently left parts, or all, of their personal profiles open to the public.

And as more and more of these reputation queries are performed, experts say companies will probably seek a one-stop shopping source for aggregated information - think eBay star ratings, social media activities, old blog entries, comments made in online discussion groups, and cached documents.

This possibility is so likely, in fact, that there's already speculation about how the system could be legally navigated. Harvard cyber law professor Jonathan Zittrain supports the idea of being able to declare "reputation bankruptcy", wiping clean the digital slate to start fresh every 10 years or so.

"We don't trust people who are blank slates these days," says Sidneyeve Matrix, professor of media at Queen's University in Kingston, Ont. "lt's like that saying, 'If you don't show up on Google, you don't exist."'

"The problem with reputation reformatting; or a digital reset, is that information about us exists on privately owned and corporate servers," says Matrix. "So we can never really erase everything."
