My boss cut my hours?
I have been working as a waitress since the restaurant opened, and have not called out sick once in five months. Sunday I called out because I had been vomiting all night long. I know that I put my boss in a bit of a bind by making her lose a waitress that day but now she is not allowing me to come into work tonight because I missed Sunday. I don't believe this is fair, because I don't know what else I should have done. I didn't want to go into work at get other people sick, or worse, get sick in somebody's food.

Also, I know that my boss did not like a waitress before and cut her hours back to only six a week, because she wanted her to quit. She refused to fire her because she said then the waitress would collect unemployment. Is this legal?

I am afraid my boss is going to do the same to ME even though I am a hard worker. If this happens what can i do?

maybe its because you complain to much and dont just do what your told without question. if you dont like it quit. plus if it isnt legal what are you going to do? spend a few g's on a lawyer and sue?
no way to prove that is the reason the hours were cut back

Your boss has not done it yet so don't worry about it. Prove yourself and work your butt off again

While it's not fair, it may be completely legal. Companies are not required to schedule anyone for a minimum or maximum number of hours.

Regarding the situation of scheduling only 6 hours a week so someone would quit: If they were to file for unemployment, they could be eligible. If they can show that a "reasonable person" would have quit for the same reason (being scheduled down so they could essentially not afford to keep the job) the employer may be on the hook. You need to check the laws in the state you work in as every state has their on laws - and they vary greatly.

In most cases, your job is 'at will'. I would find a new job than remain with such a jerk.

Unfortunately, she can do whatever she wants with your hours. As far as I know, it's completely legal to cut your hours.

The only thing I can think of with her not letting you come to work today is because of health issues. I work for Chipotle and if you'eve thrown up it's in our handbook that you cannot come back for a week since you've thrown up. There are a lot of issues when you're handling food.

You need to talk to your boss about the situation. Ask her calmly if she plans on cutting your hours, ask her why, and explain the situation, do not get hostile or defensive- show her respect.
