Ceisteanna ar Reachtaíocht a Gealladh - Questions on Promised Legislation
Brendan Griffin (Kerry, Fine Gael)
On the Government’s remote working strategy, I commend the Tánaiste’s initiative in signing the new code of practice today to give all employees the right to disconnect from work. Remote working has transformative potential, particularly for rural constituencies like mine and many other rural locations. It is crucially important that as we make the transition in this regard, we protect the rights of workers. That is why today’s initiative on the right to disconnect is very important. Can the Tánaiste outline his further plans in this area and how we sees matters playing out in the coming months?
