Q: I work for a big landscaping an irrigation company. When i started my girlfreind brung me in an id be there at 630am
Cause my girl would have to be at work at 7am. Me an her split up. An i have to use public transportation. I text my boss an told her the very first bus is at 730am. Thats the time the company wants you there now my boss said yea its fine that you will be in late. If it happens again you will be terminated. Iv been a reliable employee. How can she fire if my only means of transportation is a public bus
A: Because she wants you to show up at 6:30. It's not your boss's problem that you can't get there when she wants you there.
Bruce Alexander Minnick agrees with this answer
A: Your employer can terminate you for being late or for any other reason you can think of; so get off the Internet and try to solve your real problem which is how to get to work on time. There must be some way; perhaps getting up at 5:30 like before and walking to work. Think.
