I have been working for a company for a little over 2 1/3 years. My hours of work are 8AM to 4PM and I attend school from 5:30 - 10:30PM. My supervisor is aware that I am in school. On Friday, and e-mail was sent out with schedule changes in our department. Because it was sent after 4 pm I did not receive it. On Monday, I was out sick. Today, Tuesday I come in to work at 8 and there is a schedule change effective January 1st with my hours as 10 - 6. One of my other co-workers had a printed copy of the e-mail (that was copied to everyone including me) that was sent out on Friday which showed my hours as 8 - 4. When I looked in my inbox, there was no original e-mail from the supervisor. However, when I looked in my deleted folder, the e-mail was there.

The schedule change paper has to be signed and given back to the supervisor. My 8-4 shift was given to a newly hired person who has been begging for an earlier shift. Due to my school schedule I cannot work 10-6. My supervisor and EVERYONE else in this small company is aware of this. If I do not sign the paper I can be fired for insubordination which will hinder me from receiving unemployment benefits.

I am in school for medical assisting. I graduate in March and move on to an internship for 11 weeks. Unfortunately this internship is not paid. I am honestly tired of the favoritism in this workplace but I do have rent to pay and a five year old child. What can I do in this situation?

First, speak to your manager /supervisor and gently remind them about your school schedule and that you are not available to work those hours. If that doesn't help then I would speak to their manager. You want to try and remedy the problem before escalating higher. If that still doesn't help and your company has an HR department, I would bring it to their attention.

Well first things first.. DON'T QUIT!! lol.. Just let things roll out.. B/c when you apply for U/E they will investigate and they will get BOTH sides of the story, don't sign anything you cannot agree too and try to resonate with them. Keep copies of every letter or email or conversations you have cus it will come in handy if you need it.

I was in a sticky situation a few years ago when I went on maternity leave.. after I had the baby i was scheduled to come back 3 months later and due to medical reasons after delivering i was not able to return to work on the date they wanted me to return to work.. all I needed was an extra month and they did not budge so they let me go .. and I got unemployment b/c I got let go thru no fault of my own.. THEY didn't feel like compromising even tho I had legal medical proof of everything.

Good Luck!
