OMG! DH just called me to tell me....

That his work is not going to schedule him for the ENTIRE month of January because I am due January 20th! I AM SOOOOOO PISSED! They dont want any problems with scheduling. After the 5 years that he has put into both of their stores they treat him like this.  Im 36 weeks...I could have the baby next week...or now. Or I could have him almost in Feb. They have a LARGE staff. Im sure they could figure it out but the managers suck.

Money is already tight. We had unforseen set backs after I got pregnant and now this. I cant handle anymore stress! And my poor DH. They are treating him like shit after all he has done.

Well in a way that's kinda nice. He doesn't have to scramble to get his shift covered or worry about not being there in time if you have a quick labor. But from the money aspect- that sucks! Is able to use FMLA to secure his position? Or vacation pay? Sick pay? Anything like that?

I don't think they can legally do that. They cannot punish him for the impending delivery. Emergencies happen all the time, they need to prepare a little better. Can he go to anyone above the managers? Is there any corporate personnel that he can go to? This is blatant discrimination.

he works just under full time so he gets nothing. They dont want him to leave, we arent worried about that.

he may be able to talk to one of the managers. The stores are city owned...so IDK . He works just under full time so he doesnt have anything.

I would recommend contacting the local labor department (or wharever you call it in your area).
