    I'm work full time at a cinema over the holidays. Yesterday on my day off work rang and left a message asking if i would like to come in to work, as they were anticipating it being busy. I didn't take the call as i was still in bed (lazy i know, but i was working until 3am the previous night), and by the time i woke up i thought it would be pointless going into work, and also, after working a 42 hour week i didn't really feel like going in on my day off. However they rang me this evening (i missed the call again), and i'm not sure why they rang. I won't get into trouble for not going into work yesterday, or for not answering their call will i? :unsure:

    Just make up a lie if you do. Say there was a family emergency and you couldnt call back if you get in trouble but I don't think they would give you into trouble

    You probably won't get in any trouble if you weren't supposed to work when they rang.

    :ditto: How are they to know that you weren't just away for the day?

    Thanks . It's not like i don't help them out if they need it, i work full time but this week did 7 more hours because it was busy, i just wanted some time to myself. I wasn't scheduled to work, it was my day off. Hopefully i will be ok, i just got worried when i saw another missed call from work on my phone this evening.

    Just say you were at a friend's house and had left your phone at home. :indiff: You're not 'on call'!

    Exactly, your life is your life, it doesn't (shouldn't) revolve around a stupid cinema.

    dont worry about work on your time of, they pay you and in return you do a good job for them! they dont own you. simply say you missed the call, and if they dont believe you or act like knobs, don't back down or take any crap!

    i hate employees who think they own you


    life and fun before work!

    Thanks everyone, i will just say i missed the call. I just felt bad as well for not doing anything, but it is my scheduled day off. I just wanted to make certain that i couldn't get into any trouble for not coming in or anything.

    Unless it says in your contract that they can call you in on your day off and you have to attend, you're not going to get in trouble for it!

    I don't think so and i hope not. That's not usually in someone's contract is it? I mean they did just ring and ask if i could come in, they didn't say i had to. It should be ok shouldn't it? :redface:

    I very much doubt it would be, it's exceptionally unusual for something like that to be part of someone's Ts&Cs, and you would have had to specifically agree to it hehe.
