Crispin has layoffs a couple of weeks ago. They announced it at a virtual town hall. The CEO did the usual “good people, hard to see them go” routine. Then he pivoted to the fact that he had safely made it to his Swedish vacation home and proceeded to walk around with his laptop and show it off to everyone.
I’m really exhausted and feel that taking time off to recover might be treated like a failure to deliver :( and while I’ve been working way too hard, seems like I’ve not been able to network well to apply to newer roles. Any of you here that took time off from work to just recover and prepare for your exit? Tips please!
My clients asked me if I can work during my vacation in Mexico. They approved my vacation arrange three months ago. And they are asking me one day before I left? Seriously?!

Spinoff question... I know FMLA technically only covers you if you've worked for 12 months at your employer but has anyone actually had their employer say "sorry you we only here for 10 months so you can take your two weeks of accrued vacation, after that we'll expect you back." ? Since FMLA is unpaid anyway, I would imagine most employers would at least let you have unpaid time off.
Anyone ever put off using PTO days and instead “worked from home” during a planned vacation before they resigned in order to cash out the PTO later? I really don’t want to carry my work laptop when I leave on vacation, but the idea of cashing out the PTO when I end up leaving the job (not yet planned or official) is real nice.
