I have a few questions regarding vacation time for exempt employees. I recently submitted 40 hours of vacation time that my boss approved. During my vacation, I received a lot of requests for various tasks that my boss needed. He sent requests via email, texts, and on Teams. So during my vacation, I spent time researching the things he requested and sent him the information.
Why should I be docked from my vacation time if technically I was still working? My boss never indicated that the requests could wait till after I returned from my vacation. He said he needed the information asap. Should I request to be given my vacation time
