By Tejpreet (Tanya) Sambi


In our final video in our new series “Understanding the Right to Disconnect Law”, Tanya Sambi, Employment Lawyer at Minken Employment Lawyers, discusses the Potential Harm Caused by Right to Disconnect Policy to both employers and employees.

In this series we will be examining various issues concerning the Right to Disconnect Law.

There are at least 6 potential areas of harm that the right to disconnect policy could cause employers and employees:

  1. Interference with Flex Hours
  2. Conflict With Hybrid Remote Work Policy
  3. Loss of Opportunity to Shine
  4. Reduce Overtime Pay
  5. Reduction of Pay; and
  6. Constructive Dismissal

However, the potential harm caused by the new Right to Disconnect law can be avoided by having a well thought out and drafted policy in place.

As a reminder, employers with 25 or more employees as of January 1, 2022 are required to have a written policy in place for all employees with respect to disconnecting from work, by June 2, 2022.
