I have accepted a new role and had hoped to go on vacation before. I had planned on being away the week of Labor Day but my new manager has indicated he wants me to work that week.

Would I be starting on the wrong foot if I told them I cannot start when my manager wants me to?
At what point is it okay to ignore work-related emails and messages when you're on vacation? I'm on PTO and have not gone a single day without opening my work laptop.
