Emailing on commute should count as work, says research

A recent study found that 54% of passengers on a train use the onboard WIFI. Many of these passengers describe the journey as “transition time” between family and work, while others called it “dead time”. The study by the University of West England, suggests that sending emails while commuting adds to the total working hours. Some researchers are calling for the journey to be part of the working day. However, the introduction of this would be difficult to calculate and could call for more surveillance from employers.
