Norwegian bosses let staff off checking e-mail when on leave

Thursday 10 July 2014 | 13:41 CET | News
Most employers in Norway do not expect staff to check their work e-mail accounts when they are on holiday, Telenor said. It found that 68 percent of respondents in a survey that it commissioned from YouGov did not demand that they be reachable by electronic mail when away on leave. It said 26 percent of bosses think workers should check their messages now and then, and 6 percent said staff should be contactable at all times.
