Wednesday is the Fourth of July… which, in corporate America, usually doesn’t mean much more than a day or two off.
For some workers though, this national holiday doesn’t even mean that. Even though they might be granted a day out of the office, majority of workers will still be working at home, according to CareerBuilder.com’s annual vacation survey. Twenty percent of workers say they plan to stay in touch with the office during their vacation this year, the survey says. Nine percent of workers say their employers expect them to check voicemail or e-mail on vacation, but others may feel the pressure to do so anyway.
