There have only been a few times that I can recall being asked to work on a Sunday. Each time I told them I'd prefer not to work on Sunday, and they didn't press the issue. I worked extra hours on other days to make sure the work got done. Thinking ahead to October, I may be required to work on a Sunday or two. Procedures I've been working on will be validated at that time. My customer is the Army, and I assume that if they schedule work for that day, that I will be required to be present. I think my company may be less flexible this time around. I was just wondering what your thoughts were with regard to being firm about not working on Sundays, if you "had to". Its a given that requests made to an employer would be made respectfully and professionally. If after requesting not to work on a Sunday you were told you still had to, do you think the best course of action is to just refuse to work on Sundays, and take the consequences at work? Or, would you make an exception once or twice and work? I'm leaning towards respectfully refusing and taking the consequences, but maybe I'm leaning in the wrong direction.
