    hard and strict

    Hello

    Are "hard and strict" in the following sentence OK?

    He's a hard and strict boss. We can only take one day off every month. We can not leave the office even one minute earlier, sometimes he has us stay late till 9 pm to deal with our works.

    Many thanks

    See above.

    You can say either "stay late" or "stay till 9pm" but they don't really work together.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
