Just got back from the cook islands and looking for my next island vacation. What is your favorite island to visit? Best sand beaches? Good snorkeling or diving?
Hello All, Looking to learn how California employers are capping accrued vacation. Say accruals increase with years of service and at 10 years an employee accrues 4 weeks per year, versus at 1 year an employee accrues 2 weeks per year. What is the cap for the 1 year (2 weeks) versus the 10 year (4 weeks)? For example, do you cap at 1.5x across the board? Or, does the accrual cap change?
Got signed off from work a couple of weeks back due to work related stress (severe anxiety). I was the lead on a multi million pound project and the stress got to me. Firm was supportive. However, ive decided that I definitely do not want to continue working at my current firm (the stress is just not worth it) and am considering handing in my notice during my time off. Any thoughts on whether thats a step too far? Should i return to office full time before handing in my 3 month notice

My boyfriend of 3 years broke up with me yesterday (he moved back home recently, we were doing long distance, and he decided he wanted to focus his time on rebuilding relationships with family/friends he lost touch with). Do any of you have tips of coping with heartbreak while also trying to manage work? I have too much on my plate to take time off, but I’m worried my focus isn’t going to be there on Monday.

Does anybody here own a holiday home and rent it out? Thinking of building one but given there's barely any tourism I'm thinking my funds could go further elsewhere.
My manager doesn’t seem to have any boundaries - always saying yes to additional unnecessary work from the client and always working through weekends/nights/PTO/holidays. They are supportive of encouraging everyone else to have a WLB but since they don’t lead by example it ends up making me feel like I’m doing something wrong or crossing a line whenever I set a boundary with them or push back on a request that doesn’t align with our goals or priorities
