Volkswagen to stop some off-the-clock emails

December 23, 2011 7:52:20 PM PST
Volkswagen is trying to help its workers maintain that delicate balance between home and work by agreeing to stop sending them emails when they're off the clock.

The gesture comes after staff members complained their personal and professional lives were becoming blurred.

Under the new policy, Volkswagen says it will cut off its BlackBerry email servers to some employees when they complete a shift.

The move only covers trade-union workers in Germany.
