Employees will be on the ninth cloud if a new private bill will get passed in the parliament which would give the power to the employees working in any organization or company to not answer the calls of their bosses after their working hours.

Nationalist Congress Party or NCP MP Supriya Sule has come up with a private member’s bill in order to set up an Employees’ Welfare Authority. This bill aims if passed, give the right to disconnect from workplace-related calls and emails after office hours.
What is a Private Member’s Bill?
A private member’s bill in a parliamentary system of government is a bill (proposed law) introduced into a legislature by a legislator who is not acting on behalf of the executive branch. The designation “private member’s bill” is used in most Westminster System jurisdictions, in which a “private member” is any member of parliament (MP) who is not a member of the cabinet (executive).
However, if the bill gets passed, the representative will have the lawful rightfulness to not be responding to calls from the workplace and their manager once they are finished with their day of work. At the end of the day, it won’t be compulsory for the representatives to get or answer the calls after their available time. The bill would be appropriate to every one of the areas, regardless of the idea of administrations gave.
Currently, France is the only nation in the world which allows the employees or representatives to not accept calls and answer to messages following the working hours. France passed a law in the year 2017, making it non-required for laborers to answer or reply in the wake of working hours. The law came to be called as the “right to disconnect”.
