I             Agreement with Employers

We cannot steal from our employers.  If our agreement with them is to work 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, we must honor that agreement.  To the Bishops of the church, President Hinckley said:

I know that the work is hard at times. There are never enough hours to get it done. The calls are numerous and frequent. You have other things to do. That is true. You must not rob your employer of the time and energy that are rightfully his….  It is possible to budget your time so that you neglect neither your employer, your family, nor your flock. (Gordon B. Hinckley, “To the Bishops of the Church,” Ensign, Nov. 1988, emphasis added)
