Ignore what commiecorvus just told you (no offense).
Well it would have been logical to atleast inform her that you didn't finish it before leaving. I mean it's not hard to tell her over the walkie that you have to clock out and couldn't finish it.
this situation is very serious, my friend. You should not worry about retaliation from the tl in question. Show your hr the texts and tell her the situation.
I have seen this happen where the tl called a team member on the phone about something the team member did not do at work.
The tl was fired the next day. What happened to you is a huge conduct violation.
You aren't in the mess, your TL is. Don't worry, enjoy your days off, and leave your TL for the shiftstorm that'll start on Wednesday.If I just told her before I clock out that "I have to go. I'll clean it tomorrow" I wouldnt be in this mess. However, i rushed my self towards the end of my shift and wasnt thinking straigght when she talked to me.
You said you were going to do it and you didn't of course your TL is going to be peeved.
You even admitted yourself you should have called her on the walkie before you left.
The texts are not threatening at all. She is merely warning you that further miscommunications will result in a coaching. Your dad is correct, just apologize to your TL.
Take ownership of the problem, and move on.
Sorry but TLs dump work on me all the time. No pity here. The TL needs to go. At my store that crap would not be tolerated.
I meant she was condoning you working off the clock when she contacted and threatened you while you were off the clock.
There are two different issues. One is the TL contacting you with work related messages while you were off and the other is whether or not you got something done.
Do not even bring it up to the TL, take it to HR. She had no right whatsoever to message you about it when you were gone. I can not stress enough how important it is for you to go to HR and let them resolve it. I would not let someone get away with it on me or anyone on my team.
