I was working as a part-time music teacher, but when the pandemic hit they had me working 1-2 hours a week online for about a year. I contacted them multiple times hoping to obtain more hours and they never got back to me.
Eventually my students quit and I no longer had work. Cue to half a year later, they tried to contact me to start teaching ASAP after leaving me unemployed, so I didn’t respond. Fast forward to last month (a year after they stopped giving me hours) they emailed me saying:
“We have reached out to you multiple times in the last few months by
text, email and phone. Unless I hear otherwise I will take a non-reply
to this email as confirmation you are resigning your position at the
Studio effective [date]”
So they stopped giving me work for about a year, I didn’t feel the need to respond as I assumed I no longer worked for them, and then this? They don’t want to take responsibility for me not having work?
