  • Family Responsibility Discrimination

    Schools are closed in my area tomorrow. I received a text message from a superior today asking that I make arrangements for my child tomorrow so I can come into the office. I took this as very offensive for many reasons. I am positive this text message was not sent to every parent whose childs school is closed tomorrow. Is this considered discrimination and would this warrant a legal case?

    No your employer has the right to call you in unless you have a contract that says otherwise. He can also fire you for not coming in

      Thanks. I understand that I am expected (and should) make arrangements for my child when schools are closed. I don't think its OK that the company single me out especially with no reason to do so. I would think they would have to send that message to all employees with children, not just one.

          Keep in mind that you are free to refuse. Children come before work, and it's not always easy to make other arrangements for the supervising of them. If the employer fires you, you can draw unemployment.

          Employers often enjoy overstepping their boundaries and blur the line between employee and indentured slave.

            True but does the Op really want to lose her job!? Unemployment is only a percentage of her current pay and may not pay the bills

              It's up to each individual whether money is more important than groveling.

              It's unreasonable for the employer to expect only one employee to come in, when she is not available.
