HomeProfessional Relationship QuestionsHow do I tell my boss that I am not working on the holidays?
Roy Murray asked 1 month ago

My boss has this habit of giving me work to do on the holidays, and I really don't want to do it. It's not that I don't like work, but I feel like I should be able to spend time with my family on these days. How can I tell my boss that I'm not going to work on the holidays without sounding unprofessional or like I don't care about my job?

The best way to approach this situation is by being honest with your boss. You should sit down with them and explain the situation. Thank them for the opportunity to work with them and let them know that you appreciate all they have done for you. Then, explain why you can't do any more work, and be sure to emphasize that it is nothing personal.
