This is what should you do when you are feeling overworked, overwhelmed, and tired

“If you are working too many hours or too many days in a row, check your collective agreement to find your maximum weekly work hours,” advises staff rep Steve Torgerson. “And if you aren’t on call, you don’t have to answer your phone or volunteer to work.”

“Working too much, being tired and overworked is a health and safety issue, so using the Employee and Family Assistance Plan or a company fatigue policy is also an option.”
