That seriously sucks. I would talk to them because frankly it's unfair.. if you knew earlier you'd be working 8 hours a week you might've taken another job instead. I'd quit frankly. How rude!

Could they be thinking that all your sick days are just you making excuses to take off work? Because it does sound like they are cutting your hours in an effort to get rid of you.

They cut everyone's hours like that. And I'm one of their best employees so I don't think they'd try to get me to quit. But we have no boss right now and everything's crazy. The lady who runs the program for all the schools in the county is our temporary boss and she's not a nice lady.

She may have people she'd like to have fill any openings. It happens.

No, I haven't had any inexcused sick days, I have a doctors note covering each day I've been out, and I've even come in feeling HORRIDLY sick just so that they wouldn't be short handed. My boss knew that and knew I was one of the only ones who actually takes this job seriously and works really hard but she doesn't work there anymore.

I did and she said "no one is guaranteed ___ hours". And I would quit but honestly I love this job and I love the kids. I really don't want to quit.

I know it would be a totally different age group and whatnot... but maybe you could take that experience and apply to daycare centers or something?

Fair warning, even with doctor's notes, you can still be let go for excessive absences in a lot of places, unless you on FMLA.

It was just a week and I had the flu. My boss (who isn't there anymore) told me not to come in. I told her I was going to try and come in even though I still felt sick, but wasn't contagious anymore and she told me "don't worry about coming in til you're feeling better, we have it covered". I have the texts saved. So I really can't be about that.
