I went to work one day. And i got real upset so i told the assistant supervisor i was going home because i could not find the main boss to tell him. And so she looked at me and said you are going home and i said yes. Then she walked away. So i assumed it was no problem. They are who i usually go to if i need to leave early anyways. Next thing i know i am fired for job abandonment because they all said i did not tell anyone. I talked to one of the owners and told them that i did tell the helper and i did not just walk out. He reviewed everything and told me he was sorry i had missed days and he would like me to come back. But i missed two weeks without pay for something he seen was clearly not my fault. Can i get paid for those 2 weeks
In WA, the employer is required to pay you for the hours you worked. You presumably did not work during those two weeks whether or not the employer is right about why you left the day you did leave.
You can always ask the employer to pay you. There is no law that would prohibit the employer from giving you money the employer does not have to pay.
The employer is prohibiting from committing unlawful discrimination. Unless you are alleging that firing you is due to unlawful discrimination, you can be fired at any time in WA if you do not have a contract with the employer that limits its ability to fire you.
