Submitted by oleg  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Answer: If there is a real risk of one losing one's job then it is permitted during the 9 days, which is a minhag, up until the week of Tisha B'Av (which doesn't really exist this year when Tisha B'Av fall on a Sunday) which is assur according to the Gemora.
