I work for a tow company where we have set schedules.
Previously, another employee has made threats about cutting my brake-lines or poisoning me and my dogs. Management was made aware of the problem they told me it was over with and that she would be talked to about it.
Now it's a few months later. She has asked for time off, and the company asked me to cover. I told them I don't want to, and that there are other people that can cover her shift. Now a week before she is to be off they tell me that I have to cover it. I told them I don't want to because of all the threats, that it would make me work 13 days in a row without a day off, and that it would have me at work until 11pm then back in the next day to work a 15 hour shift.
Can they make me cover?
