I was in the ER and unable to work for 2 days when I returned I was told on Friday that I was on the schedule to work the next day. I had already made commitments out of the state and I told the clerk that I didnt know I was on the schedule. She called the only other cashier to work and she said she would. I was NEVER asked to work that Saturday or told til 3:45 that Friday I was leaving town at 5:30. The schedule was posted for the whole month and I had it in my calender. I believe I should have been asked to work that day and not just expected to work it as it wasnt my scheduled day to work. I also should have been informed before the day before. Today I was reprehended for it....
There's no law preventing employers from changing employees' work shifts. This is one of the main terms in most union contracts, however. If you're in a union, talk to your steward about filing a grievance. If you're not in the union, you can respectfully complain to human resources or your direct supervisor, but you're not in a position to command any action.
