Today, my mom fired one of the teens who work at our ice cream store because she was scheduled to work and she decided to go out to dinner instead and not bother to phone in.
This isn't the first time we've fired someone who didn't take their work seriously. When I work, I try to show up. If not, I phone in. If I don't know my schedule, I checked.
We had a really good employee leave earlier this month. This is causing a large amount of stress on my mom. I don't know what to legally do. I'm working there enough as it is and the store is busy this time of year.
If these kids would show up and take work seriously it would be a good place to start.
