Hi, seeking advice if I have a case.
Centralization of services caused my program manager position to be eliminated, and I was let go. I was a corporate EE that worked with ~35-40 facility based EE. These facility based EE are now centralized to one corporate cost center and now have dedicated leadership with newly created manager and director positions.
I was told I was not eligible for either of these new positions (mgr/Dir) due to myself not being a RN (which is in both new job descriptions
.) I was told it was company’s policy that clinical staff must report to another clinical person. I inquired and was never provided this policy by HR; I was later told (not by HR) that there wasn’t such a documented policy in our database so it did not exist. I provided HR & my supervisor org chart examples where this “policy” was not consistently applied; never heard back from HR.
My JD was updated 4yrs ago and it stated RN required; I was kept in this pgm mgr role despite not having the RN requirement, I've independently obtained 2 national credentials in the area to show I have knowledge and competency on the subject area knowing I wasn't a RN.
The 2 new JD’s contain most of the content that was in my with a few additional items-i.e. budget & direct EE responsibility. I was asked to be part of interview
panel and one applicant interviewed was not a RN instead a non-US physician (was not selected). I was “not eligible” to interview because was told I did not meet the ‘RN or “clinically equivalent” requirement’. They’ve used ‘clinically equivalent’ to permit individuals that were trained as a physician in other countries that are not yet licensed in US.
I was the only person that was let go from this centralization. One internal EE RN was hired to be the manager, and an external RN was hired to be the director.
I'm in AZ at will
state, age >40, Long-term employee >14yrs, at maximum PTO
accrual, and with exceeds performance annual reviews.
I’ve been offered career transition center…where I’m provided regular salary/benefits/pto accrual for 3 mths and an additional 1 month due to being over 40 without pto accrual rate. In exchange I need to sign release and submit weekly log to show job search activities. Once I obtain another role (internal or external, PT or FT), then this CTC ceases.
