No labor on Labor Day, please

Posted By on Mon, Sep 4, 2006 at 7:06 AM

The LA Times offers this for the holiday. Sound like your workplace?

Worried about employee burnout and turnover, some employers are forcing workers to take the vacation time they are entitled to. Determined to take some of the "labor" out of Labor Day and other holidays, employers are encouraging these workaholics to switch off their cellphones and log out of e-mail while they're away.

Some employers even go a step further — giving weaker performance reviews or lower pay raises to those who don't make use of their allotted time.
