Hyper-wired South Korea is considering legislation that would ban bosses from bothering their staff at home after growing complaints about the country’s already onerous work-life imbalance.

A bill prohibiting managers from badgering staff at home was submitted to parliament on Wednesday sponsored by 12 lawmakers from the main opposition Minjoo party.

The bill seeks to ban firms from sending employees work-related messages by telephone text social media or via mobile messaging apps after official working hours.

The document specially references KakaoTalk a chat app used by around 80% of the South Korean population.
