Student thesis: Master's Thesis


In the past few decades, the employment world has undergone profound changes triggered by the proliferation of NICTs. The provision of work is no longer directly related to the company or professional establishment, and it is now possible to work from anywhere, anytime. This apparent flexibility and the idea that the worker should always be connected has brought about several problems related to the exceeding of the rules regarding working times, thus giving rise to the discussion about the right to disconnection. A theme that, due to its urgency and topicality, is debated by companies, international organizations, and often legislated by several legal systems.
