When that happens to me---and it happens a lot---I ask for my vacation day(s) back, and I get them.

I suggest to bring for this matter to HR, and then suddenly the problem disappear

The way I avoid this: Whenever I request my PTO I tell my team I will not have access to my computer or email, but I'll be reachable via phone/text if something urgent comes up. They will text me if they have a question only I can help answer, but they do not expect me to be able to actually get any work done.

This always happened to me as an assistant. Hate to say it but it's kind of the job

Doing work on vacation doesn't set boundaries even if those days are recovered later. Set your boundaries, make it clear that you're not checking in. Agreed with @Media Planner 1'a advice to be avail by call or text. By law you are required to have vacation time - if they're forcing you to work address this with your manager first, then HR if need be.

Do the work and absolutely do not use those days as vacation.

Took PTO to make it a four day weekend...first few hours back today and I already feel stressed out, anxious and like I want to quit. Burn out or just advertising?

Coming off of my first real, full week of PTO in my 10+ year career (my fault... that was self- imposed) and WOW. I actually feel refreshed, comfortable with returning tomorrow and grateful that my firm and team did not once try to grab my attention for literally anything. Take your PTO, folks. I'm serious. It helps.

Going outside Iceland (first time) for vacation for 4 days. Should I rent a car (expensive) or is there good public transportation that I can rely on? Thoughts appreciated

I got let go from my job while on vacation. Found out through emails removing my access to brand pages and then received confirmation about it. I’m overwhelmed and can’t focus on the positive just yet

Got an offer for a job that will start in February of 2022. I’m planning on giving my 2 weeks soon and taking a 2-3 month break before the next position starts to just relax and take some time off. I’m young now (mid 20s) and I don’t think I’ll get a chance to take several months off between jobs again after this. Will this gap in employment be a potential issue down the road? I may be thinking too much into this, but would like some advice. TIA

I did it! I just resigned without a solid backup plan. I will take some time off, chill, go on vacation, will get inspired again and am looking forward to new adventures and challenges.
