Can your employer threaten termination if you are unavailable to work an overnight shift ? please read?
I work as a PT keyholder for a mall retail store. We have inventory coming up and I was told by the store manager that if I am not there for inventory the entire time (from start to finish) I will be fired. While I have no problem helping out with inventory, I have a problemm with when it was scheduled. It is set for this sunday from 6pm-whenever ( I was told that whenever is usually anywhere from 12am-3am) I am a team player and love my job, but I am also a college student and a single mom with no sitter for an overnight shift. I dont mind staying as long as I have a sitter, but I know I cant stay until 12am or later. Can they terminate me?

I'm really sorry for your situation. I would write a memo to your boss explaining why you cannot work the shift. Usually, some employers give employees a hiring letter and it they gave you one, it should stipulate in it about working extra shifts. You can also call your local State Department of Labor to find out. Good luck.

you cannot be forced to work an overnight shift if it is not in your contract talk to your trade Union representative if you have one or your HR department as this isn't right

Unfortunately they probably can. Have you spoken with your boss about your situation. Maybe you can come to a compromise or you can help your employer out in another way, a shift to cover someone else...etc.
Also, in your application were you clear on your work restrictions??
This can come back to haunt you if you do not set the limits up from the start.
But, give your boss an opportunity to be a team player themselves and @ least attempt to work together on this.

They can do whatever they want. Sorry.

You might want to check your state laws. If you are in California, yes. California is an At-Will state, which basically means that they can fire you for pretty much any reason.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Yes they can.

Was this answer helpful to you?  Yes  /  No

Yes, they can terminate you. Because they need you right now and they are a small company. If you are not there, it makes it hard for the rest of the team.

Ask you employer if you can bring Your child with you, since he/she will be sleeping for the most part. (if that is an option)

Have a nice day!
