Almost fired despite asking for a leave
SO, I think I was almost fired because I asked for a leave to deal with some personal crap that I had to take care of. I made sure all but ONE shift was taken care of, which I told them I couldnt take because it went against my availability, and that’s ILLEGAL (which I didnt mention). So, I go visit a freind and when I come back I call Tarshit asking wtf they wanted. My manager asks me to come in, which could have easily have been discussed over the phone. I look like shit as it is- it was right after Christmas and the holidays are what causes family conflict. Anyhoo, she finally approves my leave in front of HR AND then asks me why I need it.
Seriously lady, you’re not legally allowed to ask me those questions. I need the fucking leave. Simply put.
SHE FINALLY approves the leave, then, I check the schedule, and I wasn’t on it. IT WAS MADE BEFORE I WAS APPROVED TO GO ON A LEAVE! SO, they were going to fire me, but I caught them in a lie, reported them to the integrity hotline, (which is how I found this site) and I refuse to take their shit anymore. Although I am debating working two jobs while going to school. I highly doubt I will though after they put me through this shit.
