I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. I'm sorry to hear that this happened.
When you say that "people have done this before" without consequence, are you referring to leaving early because they weren't getting paid? Or are you talking about people leaving early when they are ill, have issues with child care, etc.? Does your job have a stated attendance policy, and if so, what it is?
