For calling in Sunday. Which I had a headache and I was so tired I thought I would fall asleep driving to work much less home. And I was sick to my stomach as well. So I called in. Well apparently a few others called in but that was on a different shift which I had no way of knowing. Well they handed out alot of write ups. What made me made was it was a write up for excessive absentism but I have never missed work before at this place so how could it have been excessive. And I was told if I call in again in the next six months that I would be terminated. I would have thought I could have missed more than two days a year especially when lots of people miss atleast a day every couple of weeks and nothing is said about it. I wrote on the comment section that I did not agree with the write up and I thought it was unfair as I had not missed any work prior to that and according to our hand book we can miss upto atleast 6 days before even getting a verbal warning but I missed once and was given a written warning. I honestly think its discrimination because of the whole incident before were they said a coworker and I were being too friendly but I can't prove it. Oh and I wasn't going to sign the write up but was told if I did not I would be terminated even though you have the write to refuse to sign it by law but at this place if you refuse then they fire you.
