Help is a really general request. Be specific about what you need someone to do for you and ask for that. Then follow up with them in a week to see if they did it. And then let it go. Cover a lot of people. Maybe 25% will come thru for you. Also, don’t expect them to remember you in a month—keep yourself with occasional email updates about what you are up to. Networking is hard!

Hello all! Changing from Vacation and Sick Time to just plain PTO starting in Jan. Staff can save up to 40hrs of their accrued Sick Time banks to use in 2022 in addition to their new PTO. We have a part-time employee with more than 40 sick hours who will try to use as much of their Sick Time as they can before Jan 1. If this person has an avg weekly schedule of 17.5 hrs, can we stop them using sick time if their sick + work time will take them over their 17.5 scheduled hours? Thanks!!

Has anyone taken Wellbutrin and experienced side effects? I’m 3 weeks into trying it out, and it’s worked better and faster than my prior antidepressants. But this week I’ve started experiencing pretty nasty dizziness/vertigo, which came on suddenly Monday morning. I don’t know if it’s just the latest physical symptom of burnout (which has been making me sick a lot lately) or if I’m experiencing some kind of side effect from the new meds.

Big 4 fish, how do you handle independence reporting for your bf/gf? My bf works at a big 4 firm as a consultant (not audit) and from their vague definition, I qualify as a "spousal equivalent." He's always worried that he could theoretically get fired if he didn't report me and they found out about our relationship, but we definitely don't want to go through the process, especially considering I'd have to sell most of my stocks as they're restricted. Is there really a risk to not reporting me??
