So according to my schedule the next two weeks I am not working at all. Is this something that happens? I tried to get an answer as to why I’m not working at all and no one has contacted me to answer my questions.

In my experience, you should get at least one shift per week, even if it is only a short shift. You will need to track down your leaders to find out what is going on with your schedule. ASANTS, but generally returning calls regarding questions like that are avoided like the plague by leaders.

That's typical of Target. I've seen people, including myself, reduced to 4 hours a week even though I'm quite tenured, to accommodate their new hires.

Does it make any sense to treat people like that? No.

I'm applying for unemployment because they took me from 22 hours a week down to 4. I thought it was a glitch at first but it's gone on for two months now.

What they told me is that because I'm disabled I can't jump from job to job and they prefer to have someone that will be able to go from cashier to drive up on a moment's notice.

I was HIRED 5½ years ago WITH the disability. They are trying to get rid of anyone over 50 or disabled. That is very obvious.

Did they actually say this? Like they told you because you're disabled they won't schedule you in different workcenters? That's the biggest most blatant violation of ADA in the history of like...ever.

Tell them you're not down with that, use the words "Reasonable accommodations" and "ADA".

Yeah, if they said out loud it was because of your disability...your management is comprised of incredibly stupid assholes and if you have witnesses it might be worth finding employment attorneys in your area who offer free consultations and have a chat.

Employment discrimination lawsuits are notoriously hard to prove and generally require damages that make it worth going to court, but a call from an employment lawyer might be enough to get you your hours back. And/or a transfer to a store without stupid assholes in charge.

If they actually said that it would be quite ironic considering we just had training on workday about this like a week or 2 ago 😂 granted that training isnt really any training its just common sense

Reduced hours is sadly common, cut to literal 0 though sounds pretty unusual.
