Portugal Passes New Labor Law Making It Illegal For Your Boss To Text You After Work

The Portuguese parliament has passed new labor laws including making it illegal for employers to contact their employees who are off the clock.

Employers could face penalties for contacting employees outside work hours, according to the new laws. The legislation is intended to support remote workers.

Under the new rules, employers could be penalised for contacting employees after work and will be forced to pay for increased expenses as a result of working from home – such as gas and electricity bills, according to Vice News.

There will be more rules coming down the pipeline to help work from home employees, such as banning employers from monitoring their workers at home and ensuring workers must meet with their boss every two months to stop isolation.

Despite these victories, there were some labor laws that didn’t make the cut.

The so-called “Right to Disconnect” – a law giving workers the ability to switch off work devices – was not voted through by lawmakers.

“The pandemic has accelerated the need to regulate what needs to be regulated,” Portugal’s Minister of Labour and Social Security, Ana Mendes Godinho said during the Web Summit tech conference last week in Lisbon.

“Telework can be a ‘game changer’ if we profit from the advantages and reduce the disadvantages.”

She continued, “We consider Portugal one of the best places in the world for these digital nomads and remote workers to choose to live in, we want to attract them to Portugal.”

Antwain Lee Fowler was diagnosed with autoimmune enteropathy in July 2015. Autoimmune enteropathy is a rare condition that causes children to have a lot of diarrhoea, often to the point of needing intravenous (IV) fluids. It can also affect a child’s ability to absorb food and vitamins.

His mother disclosed that Antwain was hospitalized on countless occasions due to his poor health condition. He underwent over 25 surgeries.

Like normal infants, Antwain was unable to drink milk or eat solid foods during his earlier childhood.

The first four years of Antwain’s life were an everlasting fight and a necessary experience for his family.

His health became stable for some time – that was when he started eating normally and became famous for his eating habit.

However, Antwain spent most of 2021 at the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) undergoing treatment again.

He passed away on Sunday, November 1, 2021. He died aged six.

The passing of Antwian popualrly known as Big TJ has left many social media users in shock as they mourn the 6-year-old boy.

Kamala Harris: Veep To Be Acting President As Joe Biden Undergo Medical Procedure

US vice president Kamala Harris will serve as acting president while President Joe Biden is under anesthesia for a routine colonoscopy, the White House has said.

“As was the case when President George W Bush had the same procedure in 2002 and 2007, and following the process set out in the Constitution, President Biden will transfer power to the Vice President for the brief period of time when he is under anesthesia,” White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said in a statement. “The Vice President, Kamala Harris will work from her office in the West Wing during this time.”

Mr. Biden arrived at the Walter Reed Medical Centre on Friday for his annual physical, his first while serving as president.

Ms. Psaki added that the White House will release a report on Mr. Biden’s health later on Friday.
