France already has a 35-hour work week, and a new rule is designed to make sure that it doesn't start shading toward 40 hours because of work-related e-mail, according to Newser.com.



The Guardian reports that the rule forbids workers from checking their phones or computers for work stuff after 6 p.m., and it forbids employers from pressuring them to do so.

The move apparently doesn't affect all workers in France, but it does cover about 1 million workers in the tech industry — including French employees of Google and Facebook.
