    I was working for Kroger about a month ago when I just stopped coming into work without giving notice or telling anyone because I made a stupid mistake and acted impulsively. about a week later I get a letter in the mail telling me I need to show up for a meeting if I want to keep my job. I get the letter on the day I'm supposed to have the meeting so I miss it and when I call them they tell me I am not eligible for rehire. is there any way I can overturn my ineligibility?

  • How do you deal with being short staffed?

    In the past few weeks we had several people quit for various reasons and they are having trouble getting replacements hired. I was supposed to have had the weekend off, but they had to adjust the schedule due to being short and I didn't get it. I was told I would have Christmas off since I worked Thanksgiving, but now they adjusted the schedule so I'm working 1:30 to 10 PM Christmas eve and 7 AM to 3:30 Christmas Day. Now I'm having to deal with the stress of having my family yell at me because I told them I would have Christmas Day off, now I don't. I'll find out more toward the end of this week what days I'll have off instead. They have also said since the job depends on what few of us there are, we are not allowed to call in sick. We need to report to work and they will decide if we are too sick to work and send us home. Should we be too sick to report to work, we will need a doctor's note to return to work. Nobody is allowed to take any vacation time until we get a couple people hired. Also, they said bad weather is NOT an excuse and failure to report to work due to the weather will be an unexcused. If we give a 2 week notice to leave, they said we must provide them with the contact information of our new employer. They will call to verify that we are really going to a new employer. On top of it all, they don't want to give us wage increases or overtime, I was told if I wanted to be an a$$ hole and get a bad recommendation, just go ahead and try to walk out.

  • Can the Executive Director do this?

    I don’t call in sick from work often. Only called out 4 times in the 4 months I’ve worked there. And never call out for a period more than one shift.

    I don’t call in sick from work often. Only called out 4 times in the 4 months I’ve worked there. And never call out for a period more than one shift. Every time I call in sick to the ED she questions me like a detective. I’m currently going through domestic violence issues with my ex(I’ve filed reports and am trying to get a restraining order). A few days ago I called out of work because I had to call the police again due to domestic violence and file a report and I had to go get stitches for a head injury. I called out of work 10 hours before my shift and said it was a personal emergency and I wouldn’t be coming in but that I didn’t want to specify what was going on. The ED continued to press me for details as always and make comments like “you sure you can’t come in cause I guess everyone is letting me down today.” And “I have personal emergencies and I don’t let that stop me from coming to work.” This happens every time I call in sick to work. I ended up telling her it was domestic violence and that my life was literally in danger and she still made snide comments about how I should feel safer at work and I need to come to work or I would get written up. Can an employer legally do that? I specified personal emergency but does she have the right to press for more information? What rights to employees even have here? Keep in mind I live in Nevada, and at-will state.

    "A" felt ill at the office and, as it was late, "B" offered to drive him home. Midway B said that it would be better if they stopped at his place that night due to bad weather. At B's place, A slept on the couch. In the middle of the night A woke up to B on top of him and carressing him. A asked what he was doing and B told him to relax. A told him to stop but B said that what he was doing was harmless. A tried to shove B off, but A was still disoriented, and B didn't move. Finally A blacked out and didn't remember what happened next. In the morning A woke up in B's empty flat, and called a cab to take him home. Monday morning at the office B acted naturally, as if nothing happened. What should A do, or what would you do in A's situation, which wouldn't backfire on A? Was it a harrassment, or would people blame A for what happened?
