How Bosses Are Ruining Family Vacations [View all]

Vacations are supposed to be a time for workers to unwind and unplug from the daily routine, just donít tell that to your boss. New research has found that more and more bosses are expecting their employees to work while on vacation.

Overall, 54 percent of workers say their boss expects them to work while on vacation.

That trend has some serious consequences for workers. Namely, it is affecting the health and personal lives of employees. Workers who are not able to relax while on vacation risk suffering burnout, not to mention problems at home.

snip:

"It seems employees are actually working harder when they're on vacation than when they're in the office," Campbell said. "This means both employers and employees end up paying the price of working vacations, and it doesn't have to be this way. It shouldn't be this way. Either we manage our technology or it manages us."
