Fired for so called miscommunication, during exam week
So a week and a half before exams, I go to my boss, and I tell him, I need till the next Monday off, he assures me, yes, yes, he himself has been in college, knows all about it, studying and all the tests. He then reminds me I am scheduled to work on the coming up Monday, so I tell him ok, I can work.
I work Monday, week goes by as usual, and I am expecting the whole next week off, as we had this talk already, and was confirmed I would have the week off, only to find out I have been scheduled the following Wednesday to work, the week I had asked off for my exams.
Magically, during a study group in the library he makes this phone call, I do not have my phone, we are in a study group in a library. I never hear the messages till after all exams are done with, which is the following Saturday.
I go talk to him, and he claims we had this huge mis talk, and he said he needed to schedule me to work so I would remain on payroll, and how he knew I asked off, and thought I knew I was suppose to work, and all about how he was relying on me to work. I told him the truth, I had asked for the week off, you scheduled me, I'm sorry I couldn't return the calls, I was studying for my exams, he writes up this nice conduct report, about how it was a huge miscommunication between us, during my exam week, when I asked for days off. Now I am jobless.
Did the termination actually say that??? You were fired for a miscommunication?
