NewsWork in the Digital Era – Legal Challenges
5 – 7 May 2021
The 9 to 5 workday tradition has been stroke by industry 4.0 and is suffering considerable erosion, and work is no longer a place to go to but rather a task to fulfil, demanding a “permanently available” worker or employee to complete it. Which consequences and challenges arise from this new paradigm to the employee’s health and safety? Do employees have a right to “disconnect”?
These and many other related questions will be discussed in the 4th Plenary Session ONLINE of the XIII European Regional Congress of the International Society for Labour and Social Security Law, in the morning of May 7th:
