  • My shifts getting cut Washington

    I currently work in a retail store, so this month is really slow. I'm getting a small amount of hours.

    Even when i have a shift, they end up getting cut. Today I was scheduled from 4-7. I showed up at 4 and all the managers were like "oh you don't work today". I was really confused and said "oh i thought i was scheduled from 4 to 7". They replied with "oh i left a message on your cell phone this morning". I don't use my cell phone so i didn't get the message.

    Is this ok? For them to just cut my shift? It happens all the time and I'm starting to get irritated. I don't want to have to worry about not working when i have a scheduled shift.

    My shifts sometimes get cut in half as well... they will just simply say "we're sending you home" and that is the end of that... I feel like this is wrong?

    Does anyone know the laws about this stuff?

    Thank you

    It's evidence of bad management but it is not illegal.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      Looks like either you need to give them another phone number or start checking your voice mail on your cell.

        Why did you give them your cell phone # if you don't use your cell phone?

        It is not illegal for them to cut your shifts.

                The only editing I did was to delete a couple of advertising links. The post as you read it is exactly as posted.

                      I never previously heard (or read) the term "word salad," but instantly figured out what it means given the context here.
