Today, I got written up and may be placed under suspension due to my recent 5 consecutive day unscheduled absence. When I told them I was on a Bereavement Leave, they still will not accept my excuse because its still considered as "unscheduled". FML

Start looking for another job. If you want to be a nice guy, give notice when you quit. But they've proved how little you mean to them, so walking out would be wholly appropriate.

How rude of your loved one to die without giving two weeks’ notice! Notwithstanding the final indiscretion, I’m sorry for your loss.

I've said that to an employer before -- "It was really thoughtful of my friend to die on a Friday evening so that I would miss less work."

What’s the protocol of your company for bereavement leave? And did you tell your company that you were taking off because of the death on your family. Most companies have something set up for when this happens unless your a part time employee then it’s just calling off for work. I would sit down with your HR tell them what happen and if there dicks about it then I would start looking for another job. Family comes first. Sorry for your loss

Too bad it wasn’t Melissa that died

Melissa is a living angel and we are fortunate beyond belief to have her here on Earth. When her days here end, she will surely be at the right hand of God in Heaven.

Malissa is a piece of garbage, she needs to be raped and Murdered

Oops! Stupid autocorrect! I meant to write: Melissa is gorgeous and precious. She deserves to be adored and pampered. That’s what I meant!

Nope fuck that bitch

I never noticed auto correct keeps changing it

Autocorrect is messing up again. It wrote “nope, fuck that bitch” when I intended to write, “Melissa, I want to make sweet love to that delightful lady.” I need to double-check before I hit send.

Melissa do you have a vengeful ex-husband or what?

nah...just some jackwaggon who's obsessed with her and she probably turned him down. 🤣🤣

Do they have a bereavement leave policy? Did you have the leave days? Did you tell them you were taking the leave before you left? I'm sorry for everyone loosing someone, but we all gotta have our ducks in a row

Did you inform them you needed the time off on bereavement grounds, or did you just stop showing up without telling them why? If the former, you should be able to challenge that, if the latter, well you screwed yourself over.

Did you not tell your boss before you took off? That's the only way this makes any sense.

I wonder about this one. Did you alert your supervisors of the family emergency? Did you tell them you wouldn't be present for the next five days? Did they say Okay? If not, and if you just assumed to so long on pure assumption, YDI.

If it was a death in your family and you work in the United States they legally cannot write you up. Read the Family and Medical Leave Act.

sounds to me thats not a company you want to work for
