What is the name of your state?What is the name of your state?ny
in nov 04, i was asked to sign a performance agreement with my employer. In it i'm required to call in and check with my field supervisor and voicemail every two hours using my cell phone and public payphones. After signing the agreement i had problems with my phone bill because my supervisor would call me every other minute . Last month, me, my supervisor, and my supervisor's supervisor, came to a verbal agreement that i don't have to use my cell phone (seeing that the company would not reimburse me for their calls). working in the field, i've come across public pay phones that don't work, which makes it hard at times to check my voice every two hours(i work territory encompasses several counties). I recieveda warning about checking my voice mail on time, and i explain the situation with the broken pay phones. my point seeing that the first agreement i sign was designed for a person who would have access to a cell phone and pay phone facilities, should there be a provision acknowledging that there may be encounters where i would come across broken pay phones, and should be given some kind of leeway after the second agreement was made.

any help would be appreciated :(

It would be nice of them to give you some kind of leeway under the circumstances. However, if they refuse to do so, they are not violating any laws and yes, you can be fired if you do not comply.
