complaints, illness, and tardiness? California....
I worked with individuals with disabilities (in the home, not in an office), and I am always late (because I have poor time management skills, traffic, and my car decided to kick the bucket), and then I was taken off two cases because the parents complained about my tardiness and because I was sick and had to miss sessions (after their kid threw up on me), and I traveled all over the county (clocking 80 miles a day!) and sometimes there's traffic and I cannot avoid it.
I received some kind of verbal warning (supervisor telling me I need to be more timely, because a parent complained) in October, and again in December. When my car died and I caught the death flu, I didn't have any complaints, and made up all the time for the cases I had, but they still took me off the cases. I was told when I was "discharged" that most of my cases loved me, and didn't want to see me go. After having those cases taken away and feeling like a huge disappointment to the company I was happy to receive my last check but now that I'm trying to find something new (and different, no vomit or people's dirty houses), it's taking longer than expected. I bought a new car for this job, because the one before it was unreliable, and I have other bills to pay... do you think I'll get some kind of unemployment?
Have you been fired?
If you were what was the final incident that prompted the termination?
