From Fair Work Ombudsman: Right to disconnect

Eligible employees will be given a new ‘right to disconnect’ outside of work hours.

Employees will have the right to refuse to monitor, read or respond to contact (or attempted contact) from an employer or a third party outside their working hours, unless that refusal is unreasonable.
Rules will apply when determining whether an employee’s refusal is unreasonable or not.
Employers and employees will be able to go to the Commission to seek orders on this right.

The new rules commence in August 2024.
