I was fired for being sick once. Got sick at work, had to call the boss at 2a.m. to get a replacement. He got pissed, the next day he called and fired me And threatened to have me arrested for leaving the register when I went to puke.
Over the years we have posted many situations like this. It appears that when you work in retail or most other customer service positions, management is rarely supportive or prepared when their employees get sick.
Have you ever been fired or threatened for calling in sick?
