No Work Email after 6pm in France

France is trying to get its workers a little more time off from work.  People will no longer be allowed to answer work emails after 6pm.  Employers’ Federations and Unions signed a labor agreement that requires staff to turn off their phones.  This affects people in technology and consultancy sectors.  Theoretically, work emails should completely stop after hours, but the country has not released any details on how it plans to enforce the policy.  And the effect on French branches of companies like google and facebook remains to be seen.
