Millionaire PR maven Roxy Jacenko lashes out at new industrial reform laws allowing employees to ignore their boss outside of work hours

Millionaire Roxy Jacenko has lashed out at the new laws set to give employees the ‘right to disconnect’ and ignore contact attempts from their bosses after hours.

The PR maven, 44, who has owned several successful businesses in her lifetime, slammed the parliamentary bill which sailed through the Senate on Thursday.

She expressed her ire just moments after the controversial industrial relations bill passed when she shared a screenshot of the news to her Instagram Stories.

‘Suppose next you will also be able to ignore the boss on the job too lol. Good job I work remotely these days,’ she wrote.

The socialite, who now works on her Australian business from her new home in Singapore, currently owns and runs The Ministry of Talent.

However, in the past she founded and managed six other companies, including Sweaty Betty PR, Roxy Jacenko Accessories and XRJ Celebrations.

She also managed her 12-year-old daughter’s companies Pixie’s Bows and Pixie’s Pix, and at one point owned a business called 18 Communications. 

Roxy has been very vocal in the past about her scathing opinions of Australian workers, often calling them ‘lazy’ and ‘entitled’ for wanting a work-life balance.

In 2019, the millionaire said there is a cultural problem Down Under where workers have a ‘nine-to-five mentality’ and are unwilling to work hard.

She said Aussies should be more ‘like a Chinese worker’ and strive for success by ‘working seven days a week’ and being available for work calls around the clock. 

Workers will soon have the right to ignore their superiors after they clock off under new Australian laws that could see offending bosses facing criminal penalties.

The ‘right to disconnect’ is part of a raft of changes to industrial relations laws proposed by the federal government under a parliamentary bill.

Lawmakers say it will protect workers’ rights and help restore work-life balance.

While workers currently face being disciplined or fired for ignoring their bosses, the new law will protect their jobs if they do so outside of working hours.

Employers that breach the rule could be fined.
