I work at Dunkin’ Donuts. I never been late to work, don’t call out and don’t miss a day. I gave my manager notice at 9 or 10am that I was leaving 30 minutes early for educational matters. Around the time I wanted to leave the store is not busy, there are other employees there that were capable of handling the few customers. The manager is trying to fire me but I refused to sign the termination form. (I do have 2 other write ups over some petty bullshit.)
Unless you had a contract, or union protection, you were an at-will employee and therefore could be fired for any reason or no reason so long as it was not an unconstitutional reason such as based on race, gender, religion, etc.
I am a former federal and State prosecutor and have been handling criminal defense and personal injury cases for over 22 years. The above answer, and any follow up comments or emails, is for informational purposes only and not meant as legal advice.
