The Caffeine Addict

Good to the last drop.

No free coffee for me – not yet! June 27, 2005

Filed under: Family,Work — Shannon @ 9:52 pm

I did not hear back from the coffee store. It is always reassuring when you can’t even get a minimum wage job as a college graduate. I am assuming it was because of my availablity. Maybe later I will try again.

I just fought an interesting battle with my employer. As you know I was approved for the Family Leave Act and get paid another 4 weeks. Well, they would not let me take the leave or I would lose my job. After much calling around to the EDD (Employment Development Department) and the EOE (Equal Opportunity Employer) we discovered I was a victim of pregnancy discrimination! I left this information along with the pending claim number on a message to my HR and later heard from the head of HR who is also an attorney that my leave was approved and should I need any extra time just let them know! What a pain in the butt that was!

    I am so glad it finally got taken care of. So are you off once you finish June? It’s funny how people don’t do the right thing unless theay are threatened.

    I am supposed to finish the schedule which ends on Saturday. I then have until August 3rd for my paid leave. I am unsure if I will return. I don’t know what is happening with Starbucks or what I am going to feel like doing once the middle of July comes.
