I have been working for Mcdonalds for 5 years i have been hired at 3 locations and have worked all over the Toronto area I was suspended for 2 weeks (for a no call no show) and since I had another job I was only working at this location once a week.
I have gone out of the city for a few days with my family and my shift was on saturday...I called but did not get any answer..i returned to work the following week and worked my shift. after returning home from my shift a friend/fellow employee phoned me and gave me the message the a manager had told him to tell me that i was fired after discussing this with another manger i was told that i was not fired but suspended for 2 weeks and at the end of my 2 weeks i was told to contact the store manager to see when i could return to work.
after trying to contact the store manager for 2 weeks(leaving messages, visiting the store and tried to have a meeting with him 2 times and was told the "he was busy")during this 2 week period I contacted Mcdonald's head office about the manager saying i was fired and that she told another employee was to tell me that i was fired
to which mcdonalds said that they would look into the situation.. so as i was on a 2 week suspension and after 2 weeks of trying to get in contact with my store manager i was sent a record of employment in the mail and that was all i recieved.
I was not contacted by the store manager of mcdonalds head office but simply given a record of employment and that was all
Since the 4 months i have not been working for mcdonalds I have heard of atleast 1 incident of the same action taken aginst a felow employee
