Two French unions ban checking work emails after 6 p.m.

Well, here’s something else the French do better than the rest of us: they’ve prioritized having a life after 6 p.m. Yesterday, two employee unions and federations in France signed an agreement that requires employees to disconnect after the workday ends sharply at 6 p.m., the Guardian reports. All after-hours work activity, i.e., checking email, logging into the company chat just to check in, or responding to late-night “emergencies” from their bosses, is banned. The agreement reportedly affects only 250,000 employees.
