ON institutions implement disconnecting from work policies in response to Bill 27

In response to the Government of Ontario’s Bill 27, which requires employers to prepare and implement a policy regarding disconnecting from work, ON postsecondary institutions have implemented new guidelines. McMaster University has introduced a policy that encourages employees to complete work-related communications during working hours, and to disconnect during their non-working hours to promote work-life balance. At the University of Waterloo, a new guideline promotes work/life balance and ensures that employees know that they can disconnect from their work outside of their normal work hours. Wilfrid Laurier University is encouraging employees who are working both traditional and flexible hours to disconnect from work-related communications outside of their working hours and during vacation time. WLU also recommends that other employees be respectful of others’ working hours when contacting them.
