Almost three-quarters of UK staff contacted by work whilst on annual leave

Whilst employee annual leave should be a chance to escape the stresses of work and take some time to recuperate, new data has suggested that some staff aren't getting the uninterrupted break they had hoped for.

In fact, new data from TextAnywhere, as reported by WalesOnline, has found that almost three-quarters of all workers have been contacted by their boss or colleagues whilst on holiday.
