Hurricane Abandonment

Espy88 Espy88 (New) New

Hello all,

Similar to the other two post below me, but slight difference is I am not suppose to work Saturday or Sunday could they still hit me with abandonment?

I am working today (Thursday) and Friday tomorrow, they are trying to threaten us to also work the weekend till the hurricane is over.

This is home/rehab that I don't care about getting fired from at all, just worried about my license.

So now I am deciding whether or not to just call out Friday to avoid any risk of abandonment by not "accepting" any assignment.

My question is, can I leave Friday on time and if they try to hand me the assignment after working two days in a roll, can I decline it and still be risk-free of abandonment or just call out?

As in the other threads, if you don't accept the assignment, you cannot be found guilty of abandonment.
