Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
I'm a nursing manager in a health care facility in Connecticut. For the past 6 years, my company has failed to hire adequate per-diem staff to cover my shifts, and I've never been able to use the full amount of benefit time allowed me (or that is, the full amount of benefit time my company agreed to give me as part of my compensation). My company has a policy, which I agreed to on hire, that states a management level employee needs to give 30 days notice before quitting. 1. Since they haven't compensated me appropriately, can I leave without 30 days notice? 2. Since they haven't compensated me appropriately, if I leave do I have a good case for obtaining unemployment compensation? Please take note that I am a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), and not a Registered Nurse.
