What are the rules about your two weeks overlapping with holiday time off? Is that a really bad look?

I don’t think so. 2 weeks is 2 weeks. No one will really remember that you gave in your 2 weeks during the holidays.

Check your employee handbook. Some places will not allow you to take PTO during that time, and some places will additionally not pay out remaining accrued PTO. Best to take it before your notice period.

If it’s just a day or so, don’t sweat it. If it’s longer, say December - I’d wait until after to give your notice. You wouldn’t want your employer to term you early so they don’t have to pay you for the holidays.

Bad look, yes; impossible, no. It kind of depends how much they want or need you to wrap things up and transition your work. But generally the point of “two weeks notice” is that you spend two weeks working.

My SO’s family invited me on a European vacation and I’m going. However, I am terrified of telling my mother. My parents aren’t the most financially stable.

I’m worried that telling her will make her feel shitty, uncomfortable, and like she can’t keep up with her potential future in-laws … (1/2)

I am confused about our employee handbook. There is personal time off (PT), which attorneys do not get because they can take as much personal time off, and paid sick leave (PSL), which attorneys get 15 days. If attorneys have unlimited PT, why is it necessary to give a concrete number of PSL days?
