missing one day? in my tenth month?
I missed only 1 day of work in 10 months. I was never late and always got good reviews. we worked between 72hrs and 84 hrs a week 13 days on 1 off.
One day my car wouldn't start. I know nobody in the area as I'm from Wisconsin and this happened in Illinois so i had no ride.
I was very close to getting in the union which they do there best to keep from happening. Can I collect?
I've never seen a written policy, but what I heard was you can't miss any days till you get in the union then you can have 16 occurences a year.
Did you call in the day you missed? I seriously, doubt an employer could sustain that 1 day gone due to car troubles which are "beyond your control" at the time is misconduct and generally two no call/no shows are the minimum to prove a voluntary quit by job abandonment.
