I reported to work as always on Monday 28th of August. I was felling ill before I even went to work but for fear of a point I went in anyways. The manager Chris was there. I informed him I was sick. I told I would stay as long as I could but he needed to find a back up just incase. This was at 7:30 am.
At 11:00 I was starting to feel worse and felt very feverish. Our AD Ron came in and I told him and Chris that I really neede to go. Chris then told me there was noone else to cover me.I had to stay. I made it through lunch and at 1:30 they cut the first server from the floor. It was not me. One of the night girls came in and went on the floor. I then asked if I coul leave. I was then told I had to go to the smoking side and stay there until 3.
At this time I was very upset and very sick. I told the new manager Rachel that I was sick and I could not do it, and that I needed to go home. Chris then told me I had to go to the other side. So basiclly I was being forced to stay at work when I was sick with a fever. So my two choices were go to the other side and not give my customers the service that they need or walk out the door. I walked.
As soon as I got home I recieved a call from Chris. He said to come in and talk to him and our GM Cedric (The same GM noted in the other complaint). When I arrived Cedric asked me what had happend. I told him I was beening forced to stay when i was sick so I just left. He then Terminated me. I feel like I was treated unfairly. I was a very dedicated worker and I don't feel that this termination was fair.
This is my first step in doing something about this. So in closing if you plan on ever getting sick don't get a job at Bob Evans. Because If Deathly sick or perhaps dead you will be forced to stay until your relife comes in. Don't coun't on the managers at the North Fort Myers to do there job and be managers. That would be to much work for them
