Sorry, I realize that was not clear. It is making me nervous never had such trouble before.
I am a nurse practitioner. My contract expired in March and was not renewed by my choice.
I want to know if there are any legal repercussions for not working that last week. This company has a bad reputation for treating their providers poorly and I did not know this over 2 years ago when I started.
I just don't think I can stand it. I can barely stand to work this last week next week. I already have a new job to start I accepted before giving my notice.
My original contract ask for 60 days notice. Company policy manual says 30 days. They had already hired someone to replace me and she was taking her test this last week. I have a copy of the modified schedule with me off after the 4th that the COO changed but the CEO is saying they are going to keep the books open regardless. THey were moving an NP from another clinic less than 10 miles away to cover patient until the new one was ready. Basically they are going to change the schedule back to reflect me there after the 4th now. Craziness.
Thanks for your help. Unfortunately it will interfere with my new job. The last 2 Drs that worked with us sadly had the same experience. One just left the other was treated poorly until she worked out her notice. I will contact the State Licensing Board Monday to make sure on the patient issues and see what answers I can get.
My patients I have seen in the last Month and 1/2 know I am leaving and where I can be found so I don't think patient coverage will be an issue. In addition the coverage they have for the clinic will be no different the 8th than the 15th.
I have another question in this situation. I will be glad to be done with this company. The company is holding my last paycheck until some 'charts are signed" and they say their are some delinquent orders. Orders I put in for patient to come in and have done. They have inactivated my log in to even access charts to sign off and I have no control over delinquent orders because if a patient doesn't show up to have them done I obviously can't do them. Can they legally hold my check when they cut off my access to do what they want? This check is for services I rendered.
