Push your start date. It’s only a request on their part, and it doesn’t hurt to ask/counter out of respect for your current employer. Just tell them you’d like to give them the standard 2-week notice as is custom, they should be understanding. After all, would they want their people doing that to them?

I would be very suspect of any agency that doesn’t give you flexibility in the start date.

Would you bring your partner to your work holiday party? I meant, I’m not in the closet, but I don’t declare that I’m gay to everyone at work, like straight people don’t do. I’m wondering if I should bring my partner, go there solo, or just not go.

Hi there! I need some guidance. HR and global leadership rolled out some amazing new initiatives like not starting until 10 am on Mondays, no meeting Fridays and required 2 additional summer days a month. The problem is, my boss refuses to comply with the initiatives. He constantly scheduled meetings before 8 am on Mondays and after 7 pm on Fridays. He also doesn’t let me take time off. Should I go to HR? I’m really not one to complain but I’m tired and extremely burnt out. Thanks for your help!

How do I divide the chores in this case? I’m the breadwinner - husband has been taking time off from work. No kids. Two dogs. I feel like I do more chores because there are some things that I just can’t stand. Like dishes left in the sink, dirty floor, dirty dogs, laundry…etc. When I ask him to do those chores, he says he will do them later but he takes forever. So I do them instead. He does grocery shopping, yard work, some cooking. Is it unfair if I repeatedly ask him to do more? 😡😡

When I signed my initial contract one of the terms that is in it is unlimited PTO. In that section it says it’s subject to change with company policy but that was a signing term.

Hi Ladies, I just need to talk my thoughts out. I’m about to visit my SO’s family with him out of state and stay for four days. I agreed to do so a few months back. Recently with workload change (I was planning to take time off eoy but won’t be able to do so), I really don’t have it in me to give four precious days to someone else. I’m about to head to airport soon and really really really don’t want to go. But I feel bad for cancel so last minute. This is purely on my bandwidth, not them…
