Am I able to sue and win if I was fired for calling in due to a State of Emergency?
Question Details: Recently there was a hurricane that hit my state. I commute to my job as a waitress at a strip club, roughly 40 miles there and the same amount back. Leaving work the night of the storm, the roads were already terrible due to standing water. The next morning I had to leave for work by 10 am; our flash flood warning had just ended at 9:30 am and the damages throughout the night caused trees and powerlines down all over. We were in a blackout for most of 2 days in many areas. Some of which still have no power and it's 3 days later. The route that I take was blocked by downed trees and too risky for me to take my car through the debris and mud; I watched trucks struggle to get through it in front of me. I called my manager and turned around. His response when I told him my route was blocked was, "Okay, I'll see you soon". Then when I explained that I couldn't get around it and that other routes were more likely worse if this one got hit bad, he said that he'd find someone to cover it. I never got a call back and I was supposed to work a double that day. When conditions got better and the roads were more cleared, I attempted to make my way for the second half of my shift,. However, while en route I got a text message from my GM telling me, "Don't even think of coming in tonight" and it turned into I'm no longer on the schedule and my services were no longer requested. Not long before that he commented on a Facebook for me to "quit my bitching". Would I have a case and, if so, is it worth the fight?
