No More Hours

Dear Jean,

I have a full-time job during the week and my boss is wanting me to work on weekends as well as do double shifts at night.  I have a new baby, and I don’t want to be at work that much.  How do I go about telling him that I don’t want to work any more overtime?


Your family has to come first.  Sometimes it takes years to know how much, but working weekends and double shifts will affect your family.  If your budget isn’t demanding that you work these hours, then talk with your boss and tell him exactly what you can and can’t do with a new baby.  Then he will tell you if he can or can’t accommodate you.  The final word will of course, be his.
