The Laws I Really Wish I Had in My Country



As someone living in a time when information travels faster than ever, I’m constantly bombarded with news from all over the world. It’s very easy to get discouraged by this flood of information, but sometimes I come across some welcome news, like, for example, new laws aimed at positive changes from all around the world that I often wish my country would adopt.

1. A recent Portuguese law makes it illegal for bosses to contact employees after work hours.

In order to improve work-life balance, Portugal introduced a new law in 2021 that makes it illegal for bosses to contact employees after work hours. Unless there’s an emergency, employers cannot text, send emails to, or call their employees about work matters.

2. In Norway, influencers have to admit if they edited a photo.

This law is aimed at combatting body image issues that might arise from picture-perfect, retouched photos that most influencers post on social media. The Norwegian law requires influencers to use a tag in order to warn their followers if they edited a photo.
