The central idea behind the right to disconnect is that employees don’t have to take calls or read emails after work hours.

It’s a well-intentioned proposal, buoyed on by increasing workplace stress. A report by NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational Safety) found that workplace stress is attributable to excessive workload, people issues, and work-life balance conflicts.

But the right to disconnect is a half-baked solution to a poorly diagnosed problem, one that could do more harm than good.

In this solo-sode, I explore why the right to disconnect is a bad idea, and what we should pursue instead.
