What’s my responsibility for checking emails while I’m on vacation? I have great producer coverage for all my projects while I’m gone but I’ve never gone complete radio silence for an entire week.

Hello folks. How are you doing? I was wondering what are some of the funniest Zoom backgrounds you've seen. There's gonna be a contest in my office and it appears there will be an actual gift. I like gifts. I'm thinking of putting this one and just not show my face for most of the meeting. Any input is appreciated.

We offered our nanny the option to stay at home due to the cold weather. She decided to but we never clarified if we were paying her or using a PTO day. Normally we guarantee 40hr pay. Do we pay 4 day

Anyone start a new job remotely and have tips to feel more integrated into the team/agency? I left my previous agency of 7 years and am now 3 months into a new gig but feel really disconnected, especially now that work is picking up. Team/agency culture used to be what got me through busy periods but having trouble finding that now. Lots of video calls and 1 on 1s to check in but still siloed in my home office. We all work remote from different states so going into our NY office seems pointless.

It states failing to join them will result in paying 2 months of salary that's around 130000 rs. Is it for real?
