As if there aren’t enough reasons to want to be Brazilian (the beaches, the music, the samba..), here’s another:
The Brazilian President Dilma Rouseff recently approved a bill that mandates OT pay be applicable to employees (citizens only) who reply emails after working hours. Given the increasingly mobile working population with the addiction of checking their berries, I’m not sure employers will take to this well.
Well, hoorah to Brazilians!
What about you? Do you have a workphone that you can’t help but check every 30 minutes or so, even on the weekends? Would you like some downtime, or are you secretly elated each time you spot the red blinker on your blackberry?
