I live in Iowa. Well we got a very nice snow storm the week. I was not on the schedule to work, but 3 weeks ago said I would do some more training to help me with some of my work. Because of the storm I got a hold of my boss to tell them. I know if I would of been on the schedules I would of I stayed at work. My boss seems made at me for nit being able to come in to work. My I just say my way to work the dot said travel is not advised and a tow band in place. I told my boss I would make the hours of training up. Yet she still seems mad. How can I make things better and not feel like **** about not making it into work?
Too Late! You may have set an anticipatory precedent already.
The next time when you ARE on the schedule and it snows again just as it just did, what will you do??? Your employer operates on a 24/7 basis and it expects its employees to be there to provide that 24/7 care and other services. You weren't hired with an exemption for only good road condition travelling/driving. That's the reality of healthcare!
They're not going to care what the DOT or Weather Channel says, and all those ditches will still be there all the same whether it be REAL scheduled work day or a training day.
You've got ONE strike against you now. I don't know how well you'll be able to straighten it out with mgt.
