Can you get fired for calling in sick? Watch
I'm worried it looks suspicious me calling in sick on new years, so could they/would they fire me??
I'm never late, never missed a shift, been a pretty good employee too.. does that affect how they'll react? I know people call in sick all the time but this is on new years so I just don't know
Yes you can be fired for absence from work.
And believe me, if you call in sick for New Year's Day they will see through it like... idk.. glass. I'm too lazy to think of a better simile.
Anyways, why does whatever you need to do HAVE to be on New Year's Day?
Either shift swap with someone or leave it. Do NOT take the risk. A company I used to work for was unhappy with someone ringing in sick even though they were throwing up while on the phone to the boss. So I don't think they'd be any happier with you pulling a sickie.
