A Scottish teen Emma McNulty claimed that she was fired for gross misconduct from her job at a sandwich shop after she didn’t go to work when her favorite 14-year-old dog died.
The 18-year-old had posted her bosses at a local sandwich shop in Baillieston, Scotland at 10 a.m. to clarify that she was too angry to operate her 3 p.m. period-but when Emma managed to locate shelter, her part-time job was terminated.
When Emma couldn’t locate a substitute, she says she was told not to arrive in that week for the remainder of her tasks and was subsequently notified by email that she had been dismissed owing to gross misconduct.

“It’s time for companies to recognize this and give people the time they need to grieve without worrying about losing their job.”
