If my schedule says 2:30 to 7:30. Am I obliged to stay and close, if someone calls in on that shift?

  • There is no obligation to remain to cover a shift. If you are asked and are willing and able to cover the shift then great! If someone is unable to work their shift, it is company policy that they must find their own replacement, or a doctor's note must be provided.

    As per the earlier response about the salaried employee being required to cover shifts that is untrue. The company has set policies in place to help avoid overworking salaried employees, if at all possible.

  • Its the people or managers that are required to cover the shift. that's the point of them gettin paid salary. however they will always try to make it your problem. I'm actually surprised at the amount of ppl who have been convinced otherwise. You r not required to cover anyones shift but your own at any facility, if u r not management

  • No I wouldn't be able to work part my shift, unless its approved

  • I would say so its your job and you should always want to lenda helping hand.

  • Yes, it's only right, get your hours:)

  • Yes. Everyone is obliged to come in on time to their shifts. Whether or not someone calls in.

  • I worked 6am - 2pm. I was responsible for opening the store in the mornings and prepping the line and baking bread for the lunch rush.

  • If someone doesn't show to replace u they will keep u until someone will come cover if they even do

  • No it was optional if you couldn't a manager would gladly fill in for that person.

  • I do not find that I am obligated to stay until close. However, I would highly expect to stay until close to cover a shift.
