I work for a Taco - Bell franchise in which we recently received a new General Manager from outside of the company. This manager also brought their spouse in with them and shows blatant favoritism to them. In spite of myself being passed up for this position and them bringing in an outside manager, I am also being forced to train him for his job title as well as preform the duties my position requires at the same time. Many of the employees have also witnessed these circumstances and agree that it is creating an unfair workplace. I know that spouses are not to work together at all inside of Coporate Taco Bell, but I am unaware if these policies hold true for franchise. I became so frustrated at the situation that I left work early without permission and am now being fired. what can i do?The situation where I left work without permission, I had stepped outside for a quick smoke break when the manager approached me at my car. He asked me what was wrong and I explained what my issues were, he proceeded to tell me to get used to it because he isn't going anywhere. He asked me if I was quitting and I told them that I was not. Upon leaving 4 hours before the completion of my scheduled shift, he has taken me off the schedule and fired me for job abandonment. I tried to speak with him on the next day and he refused to let me come back to work. I have tried to talk with his superior only to find out that they are long-term friends which is why he was brought into the company in the first place, and she completely stands behind his decision. This seems unfair.
