How do you set personal boundaries? One of my colleague is new to the team, so I understand she may be struggling at times to get up to speed.

Even when I told her I’m out busy, she would keep asking when would I get home so I can jump on a meeting with her.

I’m pretty sure I’m about to get an offer from a new firm and will be leaving my current firm before the end of the year.

I feel bad saying yes to the work when I’m likely leaving soon, but I don’t want to tip my firm off before giving my official notice. Any advice?

She immediately responded that I have to have that in my contract and to put it on my entire team’s calendar. I don’t see that as necessary since my kids are older middle school/high school. Is that legal to mandate it be contractual.
