Re: Mandatory Meetings with Short Notice
we also do not know if the employer had told the employees to check their email weekly, daily, or hourly while off the clock.
Finally, we do not know with any certainty whether the scheduling supervisor is an inconsiderate ogre or just a disorganized manager. It is entirely possible this supervisor does not appreciate the fact his off the clock staffers may not receive timely e-mail notice of a meeting scheduled to take place in a matter of hours.
since this seems to be a frequent and worsening problem, I would suggest the OP speak with their boss and ask something such as:
*I really hate missing our little get togethers so, to avoid such a situation in the future, is there some clue you can give me when you are going to schedule a meeting while I'm asleep to take place before I take my morning (your afternoon) crap? I would surely like to be here but with the ridiculously short notice, I just can't see my way to give a damn about meeting you scheduled in my weekend time.
**In other words; OP might actually speak with the boss about the problem so it does not become a bigger problem where OP's job is in jeopardy.
*if you don't catch on, yes, that is sarcasm.
** that isn't sarcasm
