My daughter has worked for a craft store chain in California for almost 2 years now. She is currently a department manager. Since it's corporate office is in Texas I don't know if Texas laws apply or if California laws would apply (or if she has any rights at all). She was sent home with pay the Friday before Christmas given very vague and contradictory reasons; but one reason was that they had fired her friend and they wanted to give her time to cool off. She called in later to get her schedule and was told she was scheduled on the Tuesday after Xmas. She went in as scheduled on Tuesday, but got sent home saying the schedule had been changed (but no one called her). She called in on Wednesday and was told that she was suspended--no reason given. She has tried talking to her manager, he told her the asst mgr was working with HR but was not available, she has left both the division manager and HR several messages but no one is returning her calls. She finally spoke with the asst mgr but still no one can tell her why she was suspended, how long she is suspended for, or what her recourse is. What can or should she do from here? During this past week there have been 2 other employees that schedules changed and then they have been terminated. If she is terminated--does she have any rights? The activities that have gone on don't seem right. Any guidance you can give would be greatly appreciated. Thx.
