Default Situations with work...

Yeah, so I'm having a hard time at work at the moment with my Boss and one of his Boss's.

The situation is that I go on holiday on Thursday to Poland for a few days for a friends birthday but work are being really difficult about it. I told my Boss about it 3 1/2 weeks before I was supposed to leave and he was an absolute twat about it telling me it's company policy that he can't let me go and I had to give 4 weeks notice.

Which was fine by me but when I asked if other people could cover my shifts for the two days I would miss I was told no which is bullshit because I have covered others shifts before to allow them to go on holiday. I also asked if I could make up the time during the week to which he responded no. Also, bullshit because they have let me do it before and others.

I then asked if I could take it unpaid to which he responded no basically making it impossible for me to go on holiday. To make matters worse he then gets every member of staff other than me to work overtime basically ruling them out of covering my shifts.

He said he would speak to his Boss and see if he could sort something out but he didn't.

Anyway, I was then told to write to the Manager of the store and request to take the Holiday unpaid. No response. So he has either ignored it or hasn't got round to speaking to me yet.

Anyway, 2 weeks pass until yesterday when I am told by my Boss "If you don't turn up for work on Saturday and Sunday, you have lost your job". Now, I was under the assumption you have to have 3 written warnings before they can fire you on the spot. I have had zero. So I went and asked my supervisor he told me he is right and that it is actually gross misconduct on my part.

I can't miss this trip because it is quite important to me because of a trip to Auschwitz but I don't want to leave a job I have settled into really well. Can anybody offer me some advice or tell me if what they are doing is actually legal?

A week in advance had they not let me go i would have handed in my notice. A say a week in advance because you work a week before you can leave a job after notice.

Telling them to fuck off is tempting as well, but if you get sacked it screws up your reference for future employment.

To be honest your boss has you fucked real good. He must seriously hate your ass and now you have a choice to make, keep the job or go on this trip. I say keep the job and then begin to look for a new job, if you do not attend this trip i am sure your friend will understand if you explain the situation to them. But at the same time look for a new job and leave, that sort of management is of the worst kind.

And fuck school too. I skipped today after a doctor's appointment in the morning. I already missed the first part of the day and I'm not gonna bother to show up for the rest.

It's good that you're committed to your job, Jeezy. Sucks that they're treating you like a jerk. No vacation days, and you get fired for one infraction? That's bullshit. Seems like you've already done everything you can do. Gross misconduct? Come the fuck on, you just wanna take some days off. Good luck, man, maybe they're violating some regulations or somethin. LOL.

I don't know what the job market is like across the pond, but honestly I'd find another job if I were you. Things come up and if three and a half week's notice isn't enough then your bosses are being fuckholes and you should probably crap on their desks just before you punch out on your last day.

Seriously. Eat lots of corn and peanuts the night before, too.

Late.

You said the trip means so much to you so to be honest theirs really no choice to be made.
Your young, you can find other jobs

I say...

If you give two weeks notice and offer to work around your ciricumstances and they are shitty to you about it like that.... then QUIT!

A management team which is poorly run makes a company poorly run and eventually there is no room for moving up and it is time to move out...

IF you REALLY can not miss your Poland trip quit and find a better job with more clearly defined personal resources and better management.

OR decide that life is really about having work and keep the current job you have, stay home from your trip and learn how to play by "your boss's" rules.
