Sometimes, an employee asks for schedule changes, extra hours or even permission to work from home now and then. If you grant such requests, track them carefully.
Recent case: Katherine worked as a telemarketer. After getting into a vehement, profane argument with her supervisor, she was terminated for insubordination.
Katherine decided to get even in court. She sued for sex discrimination, claiming that a male co-worker had been allowed to work from home, got extra hours when he requested them and got modifications to his Saturday schedule when he asked.
However, she admitted she never asked to work from home or for a different schedule. When she did ask for additional work hours, she got them. The court dismissed the claim. (Garges v. The People’s Light and Theater, No. 09-2456, ED PA, 2012)
