  • Virginia--they cut my hours because I caller in sick on a friday

    The company i work for has a habbit of penalizing people by taking them off the schedual for days when they/I signed up to work 30 hrs. a week. Is that legal?
    I have been with this company for almost a year and I cant even get my benefits because this has happened to me 2 times. To get them you have to average 30 hrs a week for atleast 3 months, I have not been able to do so because they keep screwing with my schedule, therefor if i do get sick i cant even bring in a not from the doctordue to no ins. and i dont get paid enough to go and pay the uninsured fees. So they can assume the worst,as far as me calling out, and penalize me for calling off sick, and because it was an important day of the week, only schedule me for 12 hrs. the next week. How is that possable when I was origionally given a 30 hr week? Plus I was speciffically told it was because I got sick on a Friday and if it was another day of the week it probably would not have happened. Can they get away with that?
