So I just got a new job at Dunkin’ Donuts and I wanted to go to church and my boss said that I have to come in or he would fire me. I didn’t know what to do but since I didn’t want to get fired, I went in for work. I’m afraid that the same thing is going to happen again this Sunday. I told him that I go to church but he wouldn’t listen to me.What should I say to my boss if this does happen?
Did you fill out an availability sheet when you first got hired? Usually jobs like that have weekly or biweekly schedules that the manager fills out based on what times employees say they are free. You may have forgotten to mark yourself as unavailable on Sunday mornings, and that’s why he gave you that shift. I would talk to the manager about it and ask if there’s a way to say you’re unavailable to work on Sunday mornings.
