Vacations are a chance to unwind and get away from work for a while. But a new survey in Canada shows the majority of workers don't completely cut ties to their jobs and businesses while they're relaxing at home or frolicking on a sunny beach. A full 57 percent of people surveyed by job-search Web site say they do some work via e-mail or phone while on vacation.

Twenty-three percent of the respondents occasionally check their e-mail and messages while on vacation. Seventeen percent said they make themselves available for emergencies. Another 17 percent said "they never really stop working."
