Big Lots - Child in Hospital Got Fired
BRADENTON, FLORIDA -- Yes just got fired from Big Lots for attendance issues after working there for two years. I had doctors notes every time I had to leave work early to take care of my sick child. Management even wanted to talk with the daycare when they called me to let me know my daughter was running a fever.
My daughter has been hospitalized three times since I got hired at Big Lots. I gave the manager the hospital paperwork each and every time not realizing that I was getting penalized for not being at work. Its kind of funny that when I called off the last time to the assistant manager and asked for the numbers of either the district manager or the human resource manager so I could make sure I don't lose my job that two days later my store manager decides to fire me even though I was one of her hardest workers.
