Elyz631211dI'd tell him I have plans. If it doesn't say do in your contract he shouldn't expect you to work on weekends.
In my country I would have to do it if it was formal request from employer (bare certain special situations), but I would certainly start looking for new job if it was frequent occurrence. I average less than 10h of overtime per year.
rutee071726111dI'll do it if it pays more. Companies usually have a higher rate for weekend or holiday work. I like cash, some people prefer rest days though.
Manager: Well, we can finish that on Saturday.
Me: We can finish that on Monday too.
neriald89211dI’d make my way in the conversation to this line. Even though working at home is not a problem that is something you decide, he shouldn’t make his plans accordingly, and be grateful when you decide to do something on your own time.
If you have a contract: apply it.
For example, at my company, they can ask to do late hours and weekends. But they must ask 1 week before and are paid twice the rate.
So in one month, I could get my war machine with 2 Quadro p5000. :)
If it's not paid but it gives an add value to the company... Hell no!!!
Since he said "we can fix" rather than "you can fix" the answer is simple:
: Sure thing boss, you bring the beer and i'll see you at 6am, don't be late.
