So I was served with a subpoena. Or should I say, I wasn’t served with a subpoena. I received an email from some lady I see for three minutes once a year. I don’t know what her job is, or why she works at our company.
Maybe her job is to send out emails about subpoenas.
The email is an obvious form email. How often could EMTs and Paramedics at our company get subpoenaed that we would need a form email to notify employees?
The email says that my supervisor has the original subpoena. You guys know what is going to happen next, right? You got it.
My supervisor has no idea what I’m talking about.
The email says if I am scheduled to work that day, I can use PTO. If I’m not scheduled to work that day, I don’t get paid. Of course, I wouldn’t expect my employer to pay me if I wasn’t on duty. But I expect my employer to pay me when they require me to wear my uniform. Which the email says I must.
I would prefer not to wear my uniform, especially since I have the perfect suit and tie to wear for a court appearance. If it was summer, there might be a Matlock appearance. But no seersucker yet.
I haven’t decided if I’ll be showing up for court yet, but I have decided I won’t be in uniform.
Unless someone wants to pay me.
