Honestly, if you were busted coming out of the toilet, and nobody knew you were actually asleep then that is an absurd reason to fire you. I doubt this was the cause of your termination, unless you outright told them you fell asleep... People may experience really bad cases of digestive distress at any time, taking too long in the toilet can be a result. Firing someone because they're crapping water/extremely constipated and took longer than an employer would like would be a total dick move.
Go back there and explain to your boss what happened. It can't hurt to try.
If you're not doing you're job, it's not unfair dismissal. I work in retail and we can be let go for not making numbers. If you're seen as holding the company back, you can be fired. I also think most of these 'And then I was suddenly fired!' FML's probably have more to them. Like maybe this OP is always a slow and lazy worker or something.
A lot of employment in the united states is at-will employment, especially entry level jobs. You can be fired at any time for an infraction. When I worked at a call center there were no sick days, and if you were absent or a few minutes late or early, you would get "points". Six points you're out, no questions. They'll have someone to replace you in no time.
How long could you have been sleeping in there? Must've been comfortable.
4, some people end up passing out from pushing too hard. If she did push too hard, it cuts off the circulation to the legs and lower back, leading to being passed out. To the original poster, if you're have a medical condition than it was illegal for your boss to fire you. However, if you work in an At Will state, such as CA, then your boss doesn't legally have to have a reason to fire you.
OP, if you are falling asleep places often, or generally tired throughout the day no matter how much sleep you get, you may want to consider getting a sleep study done. Sleep apnea isn't just for old fat men. If you have a sleep disorder and treat it, you might feel much better throughout the day and not sleep in random places without meaning to.
OP's username intrigues me. If it is in fact a reference to that crappy boy band. So, on one hand OP is an adult who still listens to boy bands and on the other it's a teenager with a desk job. I have no idea where I was going with that. Anyways, Maybe you should spend less time staying up late listening to boy bands and more time sleeping so you can keep your job OP.
Definitely agreeing with Kendall all the way here! If y'all are going to judge OP based on their music interest, then maybe you're the pathetic one here. Earth: It's sad to say that a lot of people go around labeling themselves as Directioners because of their looks; but I can assure you that there is a fair amount who don't. I love their music, and their good looks are just a bonus! ;)
You're entitled to your own opinion, but you don't need to put anyone else down because of it. Maybe the music carries a special meaning to her. I'm not saying I like 1D, but I hate when people say others' music is crappy when I highly doubt they've heard more than one song by them.
