    You gave two weeks notice of a two week quarantine?

    I kept him updated as the process went along. I wasn't just going to abandon ship, I wanted to at least give a weeks warning. I would be gone for 2 weeks, its not something you just throw onto your boss and run.

    Again, I sent it to my manager and the operations manager. As well as updating them through the entire thing.

    Who said I wasn't?
    I called immediately after opening the letter, cursing as I did because the thing came into my mailbox on day 3. It wasn't even sent out until the day after it was written

    That's not how quarantine works. Your Doctor didn't tell you to wait two weeks quarantine yourself. Or are you saying you actually kept working while you were supposed to be quarantined? If that's the case you probably should be fired.

    Do you understand what “quarantine” means and why you might need to be
    placed in such

    I don’t think you do

    In the hearing they asked for me to bring my call logs. I didn't
    I am in the union. Also how am I being a scab? I'm genuinely confused. All I did was quarentine myself because my partner has a heart condition and I come home with black hands.... And I got fired for it.

    Seriously am I missing something? Y'all are just rude and completely unhelpful.

    I am so confused. Were you sick? Why were you quarentined? How did you give UPS two weeks notice of being quarentined?

    I'm sorry, what is your problem with what I wrote? If your doctor told you to quarantine, but you kept working, it stands to reason that you were putting your co-workers at risk, and you should have been fired. If that's not what happened, then you have no need to take offense, because it doesn't apply to you. You know the old saying, "if the shoe fits."

    First you tell us you got a doctor's order to quarantine, then you tell us you gave two week's notice before you quarantined, then you tell us you self-quarantined because of your partner's heart condition. How are we supposed to give you any meaningful help if you don't give us the whole story up front?

    Here's a thought: when you submit the paperwork for quarantine pay, you might be expected to quarantine immediately. The fact that you kept working probably screwed everything up, and may hurt your chances for reinstatement. Quarantine isn't meant to be for when you feel like it, it is meant to prevent the spread of disease.

    You are NOT a scab if you are in the Union. Good luck with your problem.

    So is your manager now denying that you ever talked to him?

    She never talked to anyone from management.
