Has your workplace become a boot camp?

in Dealing with Bosses,Office Management

Your boss can require that you work certain hours every day even if you’re a salaried worker, writes Suzanne Lucas at CBS MoneyWatch. If you fail to follow the rules, they can dock your vacation time or fire you, but they can’t cut your paycheck.

But just because your manager can be strict about your schedule doesn’t mean that he should, she writes. If your boss has suddenly instituted draconian rules, try to figure out the reason, she recommends. It could be that your manager is disappointed by the poor performance of your company and is looking for a quick fix. If that’s the case, try to suggest another solution that will address the problem without turning your workplace into a boot camp.
