Thanks and I do appreciate your honesty, there is an employment contract, however they courted me based on the implied contract when I rotated there for a month prior to making my decision. Within their contract it states that "I cannot live more than 30 minutes from the hospital" however they have changed the schedule to a hospital that is over an hour away for 6 mos of the first year. Having the choice of where ever I wanted to be choosing this location to best suit the family life, now puts me at a terrible hardship and disadvantage, when I could be at Johns Hopkins or Cleveland Clinic for the big time residency. I would think they have to live by the (30 min) requirement they placed on me and to live up to their implied schedule that I was told.
Here is another angle on this, I chose this location based on their representation, when I had numerous other options. Their decision to change without notification nor prior representation is now causing me considerable financial and family hardship. Had I know these issues in the beginning or had they be honestly represented I would have acted differently.
Sorry one last thing, I know it is not a fair world and I have lawyers as friends, I have also had numerous interactions with the legal system through family issue in the past 3 years, and even after I have had great lawyers i.e. Racehorse Haynes and others tell me the same thing that the system is not there to hand out justice and that the perception of justice is based on what can be won and accomplished not necessarily what is right. Obviously in this situation there was false representation and possible breach of contractual issues. If this was "Macdonalds" implying that the coffee was hot their would be a case but a mere small civil case like this no accountability.
