How to know if laid off?

    I was a seasonal Driver Helper who began in December. My Helper coordinator said I may not work on the 26th or 27th, but I worked for 8 hours on the 27th anyway and it was indeed shown on my timecard.

    I received a text asking if I was available to work on the 2nd and 3rd, which I replied yes. I called to ask for my helper coordinator today, but they were not there.

    I checked my Time Card Viewer today, and it says No time card data found for the week ending date of Saturday, January 04, 2020.

    How does UPS officially notify seasonal helpers or how can seasonal helpers check that they are laid off?

    Were you called today to work like those other days? If not you're not working. If you want to wait by the phone for the next few days you may work. I suggest looking for a new job.

    I'm asking how seasonal employees are notified if they have been laid off or how they can check themselves. I'm not asking if I'm working on a given day.

    You won't get an answer until January 15th. They may need you, they may not, but they won't tell you. If they can get away with not working you, they will

    If you want to work, and they haven’t told you directly to stay home, brown up and show up. Don’t expect anything but if you have a couple weeks where you just want to milk this UPS thing as much as you can, just show up, man.

    You know you are no longer employed when they stop calling you. I am being serious. That's how UPS works.

    He has no browns, he is a driver helper. He could always vest up and help kids cross the street.

    Oh forgive me for my misunderstanding of your question. So to answer it.....you won't be notified, so I suggest you look for another job.

    If when you show up the guard at the front door puts you in handcuffs that means you are no longer an employee.

    UPS treats you like teeth. They figure if they just ignore you, you will go away.

    They usually send an executive to your house to notify you in person. One lucky helper even gets a visit from Abney.

    That would be easy, it takes quite a while for your teeth to rot out of your head. Most people figure it out long before the teeth go.

    UPS's way is like doing some high grade meth. You go from 22 years old to looking like a 55 year old and all your teeth are rotted out all over the course of three days.

    That third day you are freaking out playing with your keys and walking around with jerky, chicken-like movements trying to figure out what just happened.

    Dont do meth. I mean UPS.

    Plenty of stories but not by me. I was on the right side of the law dealing with those on the wrong side.

    If people want to smoke meth, that’s their business. There is no right side of the drug laws in this country, just an argument for the lesser evil.
