Kroger — probation
I have worked for Kroger for almost 2 years. I have been put on probation for excessive absence. Every time I have written proof from my doctor urgent care er or surgeon . Supposably I have 13 offenses ... Have no idea where that came from I am only aware of these. Vomiting. Almost falling to the floor leaving early went to doctor . Have excuse. 2nd had bleeding and rushed to hospital left work early ended up having ectopic pregnancy and had to have surgery as it was fatal. Was out 5 days. Then got flu went to urgent care with recurring fever and pain doctor excuse for 48 hrs off due to contagious! Then a week later illness never cured by antibiotics so rushed to urgent are after work with 104 fever. Doctor ordered 48 hrs off. Only took off 5. Next day return to work and every employee was aware I was under evaluation as there was a note ------ called off again... So rude! Was called to office and told I was put on probation for absence and tardy... I was unaware as Kroger I believed had a 7 minute rule for clocking in but I was only late a few times by a minute or two. Also some late clock ins were due to clock system as I had just transferred and had to find someone to manually clock me in. Tell me this is it right to be put on probation for these as I work in pharmacy and I can spread germs easy I count distribute meds and talk to clients. I feel treated unfairly. As I was under the impression as long as I had written doctor notes that I wouldn't be put on disciplinary action.
