The Code of Practice on the Right to Disconnect & Upcoming employment legislation - 6th May 2021

The recently launched Code of Practice for Employers and Employees contains advice for employers and employees alike on the steps that should be taken to respect employees’ “right to disconnect” and dis-engage from work outside normal working hours

This event is organised by CPA Ireland in association with Adare Human Resource Management.

The recently launched Code of Practice for Employers and Employees on the Right to Disconnect contains advice for employers and employees alike on the steps that should be taken to respect employees’ “right to disconnect” and dis-engage from work outside normal working hours.

While the Code does not introduce a legal right to disconnect, it does make clear that there is an onus on employers to ensure employees can disconnect and outlines the potential adverse consequences for them if they do not. 

The introduction of this Code is timely given the planned introduction of legislation governing the right for employees to request remote working.

This webinar will focus on:

  • What employment legislation is relevant to the Code of Practice on the Right to Disconnect?
  • What are employer obligations?
  • What are employee’s obligations?
  • What is the role as a Manager?


And will focus on answering key questions such as:

  • Can employees and managers email each other outside of normal working hours?
  • Can an employer/manager contact an employee by phone outside of their normal working hours for a legitimate purpose?
  • What if someone is happy to work extra hours or respond to emails outside normal hours.
  • Does my Company need a policy on the Right to Disconnect?
  • Will Organisations have to permit remote working when the new legislation is enacted

And many more questions…..


The webinar is delivered by experienced, HR and Employment Law Consultants who will share both their technical knowledge and their practical experience around the topic.
