Boss just emailed expecting team to work over weekend. Already spent 60h this week staring at screens WFH. Should I just ignore?

Do you like your job? Are you fairly paid? Could you easily find an equivalent or better job? Does this happen often? Answer those questions first ...

Ignore it. There should be no expectation of answering emails or working on the weekend. I turn off my work phone and laptop over the weekend.

Ignoring is always the wrong answer FYI, either do the work or say you’ll pick it up on Monday, but don’t just not respond

What are your required hours? I’m addition, these are not ordinary times. WFH for a lot of folks entails far more than just doing your day job. A boss should recognize that.

Can't really ignore it unfortunately...

Say you’ll be back online in X hours

Think about the consequences and work backward. Use the movie Office Space for inspiration.

Just say you can’t Preparing for Covid-19 sorry not sorry.

I'd just be happy to be employed right now honestly

You can’t live like that forever though! You don’t think a boss would abuse your time for knowing you would do anything because of the fear of losing your job?

Not sure what firm you work for... typically employment agreements state that you’ll be expected to work a certain number of hours above standard. Frankly if you’re complaining about working what sounds like an occasional weekend in a market environment where lots of people are losing their jobs, I don’t know what to say to you.

My company is letting a third of its staff go. Pay cuts for the rest.

I’m fully remote for 2 years now. More productive than ever. Present for my family like never before. Have met more people from my company than I would’ve if I’d rely only on bumping into them. Have a much more focused, open and dynamic creative process with my teams. My company doubled size. Why would anyone consider going to a physical place to do work that’s delivered digitally ever again, even if for a day per year?

For those of you who spent a long time in big law (at least 10 years but more along the lines of 15+), when did you know it was time to do something else (maybe in the law, maybe not)? I don’t know if it’s wfh or just the work now, but I’m finding myself getting amazingly frustrated at things that barely bothered me before. I had an argument with opposing counsel last week and was seeing red for hours after that, and little things seem to bother me much much more than they would have before
