My boss won't schedule me or fire me
I've only work at my job for about a month or so but my first two weeks I worked anywhere from 3 1/2 hours to 7 hours with no days off or any breaks then I got the stomach flu & was sent home by my boss he gave me 3 days off before I went in & explained I was no longer sick & wanted to work again . He called me into work a few days but only had me there for 3 to 4 hours at most before he'd send me back home , now he isn't scheduling me any & I've asked numerous times to work but he just says take day off .
I finally asked why I wasn't working & his comment was I look too tired or sick at end of busy rushes. I told him I wasn't & said I didn't understand why he thought that after I did fine working two weeks without day off & worked more during that two weeks than I am now . I asked if I could get changed to different shift if he felt that way with no response . I've said I would work any shifts even if only a few hours a day but want to work . What can I do ?
Chris's Response to "My boss won't schedule me or fire me?
I think I've been very clear before whenever I answered questions .. such as yours.
1. If you're going to just talk about something with a boss .. you would also be ignoring my advice to make certain you document conversations with a boss in such a way as to make clear to the boss, your understanding of what was said. Email is still good for something as when printed, they have the ability to confirm you acted and made efforts to preserve the employment with the date and time an email was sent, or received for evidence purposes.
2. Once you have documented what you asked for and what you got in response from an employer, then I would say the situation calls for an unemployment claim that presents a temporary "lack of work" situation.
3. Without this ability to prove the real situation of why you're not working .. you leave a less than honest employer wide open to responding to your claim that you voluntarily quit your job by abandonment when you went home sick .. but then you in particular, would also need paystubs to prove that wasn't true and the fact that your hours may of been cut to the point making you eligible for a partial unemployment benefit.
4. Is there no one above this person you can go to also to try to resolve the situation .. documenting your efforts along the way, as well?
