A non-working day in which you agree to work is considered to a scheduled working day. So far as penalizing you: you won't have to use a sick day/Paid Time Off for your absence, but this will be considered an unplanned absence.
Repercussions would depend on what direct impact your absence had on the project.0
If it was a pressing issue, just explain. Even though it is your off day, you agreed to be there, so honor your word. Dont worry, people get sick or get caught up with something else serious. We are humans with a life, unfortunate circumstances happen but it is okay0
My co worker got fired on her Day off and she actually came in, Don’t Do it. And yes you can be penalized for not showing up.0
What Girls & Guys Said
As for me from time to time my boss will ask if I want to come in on my day off & I always leave the ball in my court. I usually tell the boss I have things on my agenda that day however if I finish all those things & I’m able to come I absolutely will.0
I wouldn't do that, ie I would say I come in on a free day. Because I don't want to be a slave. You need to show your not a walkover to get anywhere in life. If anything you should make sure your attractive on the job market that you can switch easily if someone wants to put pressure on you for living your life.0
Maybe not penalize you, but you can bet they will lose some confidence in what you tell him the next time. When you say something happened, it had better be something that really prevented you from coming in, accident, injury to you or a family member or something serious like that, but not some lame excuse. He will remember a lie.0
Due to unexpected things happened on that day and if you have chance than you must inform them so they can understand otherwise depends on boss nature 😉0
Given your further explanations. They can’t penalize you for being sick. Go down to urgent care for a doctor to confirm you’re ill.0
They can do whatever they want. Did you let them know you couldn’t come in?4
If you didn't tell them that you are no longer coming in, then yes. You said you would so they were counting on you to be there. If you then didn't show up, then that's on you.0
Did you call your boss to explain that you wpuld not be able to come to work?0
your boss can do whatever he wants at work, just call and say that something has come up and you cannot come in0
Unless you call them and let them you0
Well they can do that if they think it was too much urgent to slide0
No but the down side of that is your word means nothing0
Ehh, most states they can fire you. I doubt first time would garner that.0

It’s unprofessional. Not really a good look.0
Big lesson; Never be avaliable on your day off.0
You need to call again0
Absolutely. Let me give you an example.
I work at a power plant. There needs to be at least one person there 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. So lets say someone goes on vacation, and the boss comes around asking if anyone wants to work Saturday. I say I do. He says ok. Then I don't show up. The person working before me calls me, and says "Are you coming in?" I say, "No."
Now, keep in mind that guy has already been at work for 8 hours. Now either he has to work an extra 8 hours (which he didn't volunteer for), or he has to call the boss, who has to try and find someone else. Should I be in trouble? Absolutely, I should. I told him to stop looking for other people, that I would do it, and then I didn't show up, putting everyone else in a bind.
Thank you for that! I'm amazed at times at how some have no real concept of having to keep a 24-hour presence in some jobs. We did the 4-10's with 3 off, and I loved it… Yet, with mid's there was just two of us and only worked together one day a week. So, if one of us needed time off… We covered for each other, and i we compensated for doing so by getting time off ourselves. Yeah, no extra money (salary) but getting a longer weekend was cool.
