In Dec. 2014, I was called by my client's family asking if I could care for her. She was at her Florida home and her Blood Sugar had gone over 900, and she was getting out of ICU. I was happy to accommodate the family and let them know that I was a retired RN and had not renewed my license, but the family was not concerned with this at all.
On Nov. 27, 2015 I was terminated with no reason given. A short termination
letter was handed to me, with no signature. I asked why I was being terminated and was told, "It's not working out", and "I really don't want to go into it at this time". I was escorted out the door.
I had been a caregiver for an 82 year old brittle diabetic with Alzheimer's and many other comorbiditues since Dec. of 2014, and took excellent care of the client. Her health in fact improved. Her daughters had been regularly difficult to work with and one had been made POA over healthcare, which all 3 daughters took to mean they could make all decisions regarding the client, even though she had short term memory loss, but had never been declared incompetent. I have witnessed many instances where the daughters have badgered/bullied the client into doing what they want and have logs with all documented.
I am asking what recourse I might have, as I still have not received my final paycheck
, which I was to have received on Dec. 4, 2015? I have contacted the trustee and been given the run around.
