Cafe de Lasalle Complaint - Grill cook

Review by tylerkaylacory on 2010-09-09
VILLE PLATTE, WASHINGTON -- On July 8,2010 I made an appointment to have surgey on a wisdom tooth that was abcessed my boss demanded that I reschedule my appointment for her to go on vacation. I rescheduled when I went to that appointment the office informed me they no longer had an oral surgeon. I went to a local dentist on August17,2010 and had the tooth removed. One week later on August23,2010 I went to the emergency room because infection had set in for the surgery. I called my boss the day before to inform her that I was not coming to work and she told me if I did not come in on August23,2010 she was gonna have to take action. On August24,2010 when I arrived at work my boss gave me my check and said she didn't think it was gonna work out

I guess unless your in love with the job or want to try to make a point, move on and find another job. It's too bad some bosses don't understand how to work with employees but it sounds like you had one. You might be better off.

You should have been given a prescription for antibiotics by the dentist, did you not take them? However, that has nothing to do with your boss insisting you change your appt. and denying you a day off due to an emergency. Good riddance to that evil employer.

*grabbing the shovel from the shed*

Okay, let's play the devil's advocate on this one. I re-read the post a few times to let things sink in a little. The more I read it, the more I got the feeling that one of two things happened. (1) Either your boss is a complete and total jerk, or (2) maybe you aren't the quality of worker that you think you are. I only say that because if you're a responsible and dedicated employee with a good, hard work ethic, then what boss in their right mind wouldn't want to accomodate your dental situation in order to keep you on with the company. Maybe this was just the icing on the cake for them in making a decision that was close to already being made?

*If I'm wrong on this one, please feel free to whack me over the head with the shovel before replacing it in the tool shed...but as I've learned in life, "There's your version, their version, and the truth".*

You live in Wa State, where we have some of the most fair labor laws that protect employees from mistreatment and wrongful termination. Take some time to look into it further...if what you are saying is exactly what happened, you have a good case against this place. Your local unemployment office can assist you as well.

Could I ask you something in complete sincerity? How long have you been employed at this particular establishment? Had you missed any other time for another reason? Some employers are quite understanding, some not and others feel too much time has already been taken for other reasons. You rescheduled and the oral surgeon was no longer available so you go to a regular dentist six weeks later to have the tooth extracted and the following week you have an infection and call your employer. Is this correct thus far?

I don't wish for anyone to lose his job. I just want to make certain we have the facts straight here.
