Ok, I am quitting my job and i have jury duty today & tomorrow and can't get ahold of my HR guy so I am emailing him. (Robert is HR, Ana is my boss) I am trying to work with them but I have serious daycare issues. I did not tell them about my son coming home bruised up with handprints (see my LJ), but everything I say is true, and I have made my boss aware of the situation several times over the last couple months. Please tell me what you think:
Although I am not sure if this is the best way to communicate, I am on call for Jury Duty selection in Auburn (I can check my email & messages during breaks) and I would like to have this conversation in writing for my records anyway.
I know that I have made Ana aware of my childcare issues, but as the situation worsens I feel I need to inform you.
In March my babysitter informed me that she was planning to move to Iowa sometime in the future. We started to casually look for a replacement.
Then in May she let us know that they had found a home in Iowa and would be moving on June 11th. So, we put our search into high gear.
Having no family or friends in the area had made it a little difficult but we managed to find someone at the last minute. Unfortunately, the Friday before my boys were supposed to start daycare, the new provider told us that she was now selling a product called âMelalucaâ and making enough money to not do daycare anymore. So, she would not be taking our boys. She recommended two people, both of whom could take my oldest but not the youngest because they had their limit of infants already. I have even put flyers up and posted ads on message boards and I feel that we have exhausted all of our options at this point. I literally have no where to take my baby while I work.
I am not sure if these are options that are available to me but if possible I would like to request a shift change (to nights after 4:00pm) or a Leave of Absence.
I would love to keep my employment with Sysco if at all possible. If it does not look like this is an option please let me know as soon as possible.
Thank you for your help
