The WRC’s Code of Practice provides guidance on best practice to organisations and their employees on the Right to Disconnect. Organisations should work up their own tailored policy in relation to the WRC Code of Practice. It is intended that the Code will form a part of the Department's Blended Working Policy, which will be developed in accordance with the overall Blended Working Framework for the Civil Service. The Civil Service Blended Working Framework is currently in a consultation process with unions representing civil service staff and is expected to be finalised this year and launched in early 2022.
