Called in 20 minutes before my shift?

I’m a teacher assistant at a preschool and the director emphasized at our last meeting to not come in if we’re sick. I’m usually on top of things there and I even made a point to do a two weeks leave request a month in advance for my mother’s surgery bec

Answers:

we are not in the position of your employer we don't know what reaction she will take

It was very last minute, depending on their policy some paces fire you for that. You should call with in a hour or two if you know you're going to be sick. You could get written up for it, if it's a first offence then you may not get fired.
Or try to do some thing to make your self feel better so you can get to work. If you're still feeling sick, you can talk to your boss, let them know you're not feeling well and you need to go home.
Best thing you could do is to see a doctor (on the same day you called in) and get a sick note from them, give it to your boss if they ask for one.

While your employer will probably appreciate you calling in sick instead of coming to work, they will NOT appreciate you giving 20 minutes’ notice. You had to know you were pretty sick more than 20 minutes before your shift started. They might also not appreciate that you texted your boss instead of calling in. Your boss might not even see your text within 20 minutes.

I would get a doctors note.

Why did u need to wait till it was 20 min till your shift? U stood them up - they couldnt get a substitute for u. Decent people dont do that. U discredited yourself. Now u must go to a doctor and get a leave off work and then present it at your job. Because u wrote in a comment u were congested and caughing and then threw up in your car most obviously u will not get that - u have no fever and what was that throwing up anyway? U either have a stomach flu or just flu, so your story is not straight

They're not happy that's for sure. Whether you lost your job or not is completely up to them. I would assume you did not lose your job it's just not appropriate for a teacher or a teacher's assistant to ever be absent. The kids depend on you.

One thing that will help you is probably going to see a doctor because if you're really that sick you should see a doctor anyway and that way when you are able to return to work you have a legitimate excuse saying you were sick and you were really sick. Due to the fact that your superior said do not come in if you're sick....you were following their instruction.

You should have notified them sooner, you may lose your job over this.

Now, they needed to scramble to get someone to fill your shift, possibly so they wont be in violation of the law and their licenses. If you've ever done this before...I would terminate your employment.

Sometimes you have to hurl your breakfast onto your supervisor's desk to make them believe you are really sick.

Did you come in late so you could get cracked out before your shift?

You didn't know you were sick until 20 minutes before your shift?
