In other words what do you do if someone is scheduled to come into work, but quits instead?
Are you the manager or worker?
If you are the worker then you contact a manager if they aren't there to hear the news themselves and let them know if you can or can not stay late to cover the shift. Typically though a manager can cover.
If you are the manager then you ask the curren worker if they can stay long enough for you to get someone in to cover the shift. If they can not then you cover it yourself as well as make calls to prospective people to cover the shift. Then you hire someone else.
