What is Proper Vacation Etiquette? I'm Lost Please Help.

Dear Jane,

I have a vacation planned for next month.  I will still be working on a big matter.  I plan to work while on vacation, albeit remotely.  Do I need to tell the others on my team about my vacation?

Sincerely,

They Probably Won’t Notice

 

Dear They Probably Won’t Notice,

What is the common practice in your office and on your team?  If you know, follow it.  If you don’t know, play it safe and let people know you’ll be out of the office.  Please be very clear about any limitations you may have (i.e., time zone differences) and make sure they have an opportunity to voice any concerns.
