Working on the commute should it count?

Updated: Sep 6, 2018

A researcher from UWE's Centre for Transport and Society, Dr Juliet Jain, has called for the journey to work (to count as part of the working day. She says that the introduction of this flexibility could "ease commuter pressure on peak hours" but warns that it would be difficult to calculate, and employers would want "more surveillance and accountability". The debate around this area is likely to continue. On the one side people are likely to want to maximise their ‘working’ commute however, on the other side many people have started pushing for a digital break. Maybe the answer would be to review where possible this on a case by case basis and offer increased flexibility.
