Many employees feel pressure to stay in touch with the office while on vacation. Whether out of a concern their employers may discover they can get along with-out them, or because of stated or implied expectations on the part of the employer, employees increasingly take work with them when they head off to the beach, the mountains, a resort, or theme park. According to a 2010 survey by the travel website TripAdvisor, 62% of employees check e-mail while on vacation and 13% routinely call the office to check in. In some compa-nies, “vacation” just means employees work from somewhere else.
