It’s summer and that means vacation time. Kids are out of school and all the photos on Instagram seem to feature blue water and white sand. 

So what’s the right way to bring it up to your boss? Perhaps your boss isn’t that cool about you taking time off. Can you finagle a few more days for travel time, or use your sick days for vacation? And what are the do’s and don’ts of vacation time — can you fully ignore your emails? Should you post about it on Facebook?

Ask a Manager’s Alison Green is ready to answer all your questions about vacation on Marketplace Weekend next week.
