Asked over 1 year ago - New York, NY

I was let go for not scheduling the day off. where could i go to file a complain ? or are they right ? or is there anything i could do.

I was fire by my employer for taking the day off. MY reason was that i was mugged and had to apply for my ID in the DMV and had to get my bank cards replace. They claim that i did not schedule the day off. There's been other cases that i had been sick and was force to go to work cause they claim i did not schedule the day off. Any day i would take had to be schedule or also i would get ridden up for it.
