    I recently looked mine up and there's also a posting says my center seniority date is 11/21/14 I started during peak, left for like 1-2 months and came back can they take that away? And make it the original date when I got hired permanently?

    Evidently, you may just have been "laid off" for that time.

    Did you have to reapply when you started working again? If not, then I would think your November seniority would be good.

    No I actually got a call from hr for the position. I did however feel out paperwork again. For permanent hire but I took a picture to be on the safe side.

    Sounds like you were seasonal, fired, and rehired as permanent. Your new hire date should be your seniority date. If it is your seasonal date currently, I'd keep my mouth shut and let it ride. If they are trying to change it to your rehire date, you might be able to file a grievance for them not catching their mistake and fixing it in a timely manner... But you might not win it.

    Seasonals can't make book unless/until they're kept on after the holiday season as permanents. All the former seasonals I know have January/February seniority dates. If you were hired after early to mid October this probably applies to you.

    Actually I continued working through the contract date for seasonal, helping someone who was sick in January after the new year. so they may have kept me on payroll I never got "fired" idk. I just seen it and took a picture even my supervisor said let it ride he's pretty chill.

    I was hired nov 21 and worked through January. After the contract I signed. I don't know how that would apply.

    I had a seniority date of Oct 19** for 10 years until it was changed to a Janury date. At first I was told it was a typo and not to worry. Not sure what I could have done about it back then, but too late now.

    I'm going in tomorrow so should I just say I reject half the pay? Or the settlement?

    10/14 to 1/15 is peak i believe. If you were hired and worked in those days you were seasonal and rehired.

    What is this pay or settlement you speak of? Keep your November seniority date.

    We have several Nov. and Dec. seniority dates from last year. They were hired as permanent PT and not seasonal. UPS had adds on the radio advertising $15/hr seasonal PT help. Never met any seasonal PT employees last year.

    It's 1st of October to December 31st. Your seniority date will be January 2nd or 3rd depends when they call u back. Shouldn't have to do paper work again

    Unless you were an employee hired late in the year and you just happened to work during peak season. An example would be if an employee quit or was fired or transferred and they needed to fill that spot. Their seniority date would be the first day they worked at that point.

    I was hired in October but my seniority date January 2nd. Supposedly you're automatically fired if they decide to hire u back.
