More than half of lawyers expected to work on holidays

More than half of lawyers expected to work on holidays

52% of lawyers are expecting to work during the upcoming Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays
More than half of lawyers surveyed are expected to work during this holiday season.

At this time of the year, everyone is waiting for the largest holiday season to shift into full swing – partly in hopes of taking some time off. Unfortunately for lawyers, more than half of them are expecting to work on Thanksgiving and Christmas.  

 We asked Fishbowl’s community of lawyers: “Are you expecting to work during the upcoming Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays?” These respondents could answer with “Yes,” “No,” and “I don’t know.” Overall, the survey received 840 responses.

Here’s what we found:

  •  52% of lawyers are expecting to work during the upcoming Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays
  • 32% lawyers are not expecting to work during the upcoming Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays
  • 18% of lawyers don’t know if they are expected to work during the upcoming Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays

 At 52 percent, more than half of the lawyers surveyed say that they expect to work during this holiday season. Following this is 32 percent of lawyers not expecting to work, then 18 percent not knowing. With such a large portion of respondents expecting to work, clearly having no time off in the winter season is a common expectation within the law community. These details are convincing for human resources to start looking into burnout rates, espectially around the holiday season.
