They Agreed to New Hours, Now Say It’s Not Working

0

Dear Experts,

They agreed to different hours, now say it’s not working. What should I do?

I am a single mom (recently divorced) and had to return to work. I had to approach my office manager about switching my hours to make sure I could pick up my son in time 2 days/week. She agreed and it seemed to be going fine for the first 2 weeks, but yesterday, she announced that it’s not working. It appears somebody in the office complained that it wasn’t fair my hours got changed and now she’s changing her mind.

When I asked for specific examples of what wasn’t working, she couldn’t give me any – and that’s when she admitted the only problem was that people in the office were upset. I told her I can’t change the hours back. She hasn’t spoken to me since. What should I do? Could she fire me for this?
