I work as a nursing assistant. They keep putting the schedule out with a alot of holes in the schedule. Making us work short. Is it illegal for the nursing home to put out a schedule with holes in them. Also then if someone calls off they mandate us, which is fine but I was told that if someone volunteers before somwone calls off and they volunteer for a hole that the person volunteering automatically gets put to the call off then because them putting out holes in the scedule isnt considered an emergency. Also with how short staffed we are they are still excepting new admits when they dont have enough workers to even fill out thier schedule. Other days is worse than others. For example, 11 to 7 am is supposed to have 3 on level 1. 2 on level two and 1 on level 3. They had me qorking by myself and level 1 qorking with two. They had filled the shift, because someone ended up just staying over to get overtimeBut in my opinion they shouldnt be accepting new admits whenever we are so low on staffing and I just kind of want to know wether or not they are allowed to do that or not.

Well, I know she was working impaired and the other technicians started making remarks to me as well about it. It is my duty to report these type of issues so I reported it to the CEO and CFO.

HelloJA: Hello. How can we help?Customer: I have a female friend who works for the fire department and is currently in the academy. Today she overheard a conversation between one of the instructors and an official at the academy talking about how they were upset she passed an exam and how they want her to fail so she can get fired. They were saying that it was personal and their goal to get her fired. These same instructors have picked on her and wrote her up for things that they call safety violations but have not wrote other recruits up for violations. There has been times where she seeked help for said instructor and said instructor has said I'm not helping you but has helped other recruits. My friend has also been threatened with termination. What should she do?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: My friend said that they told her even if she passes all of the qualifications in the academy that they were not going to let her graduate and they were going to terminate her.JA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: She works in Virginai VirginiaJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: She is a full time employee But is not represented by a union

I am a month away from passing my probation period at work.

Good morning,I am a month away from passing my probation period at work. For the past seven months, I have been placed on a permanent midnight shift 10pm-8am. I started having health issues related to sleep. My doctor gave me a letter asking for my employer to place me on a morning shift. I turned the letter in to my employer. They took two weeks to respond. They advised a denial of my request for a shift change. This is because it causes an "undue burden". It was stated its not fair to other employees with seniority, the shift change helps employees learn and for the safety of the public.My employer has 5 different shifts. 7am-3pm,8am-4pm,2pm-12am,4pm-1am and 10pm-8am.I have been told not to return to work with pay. And will be contacted by them when they figure something out. Until then i was told to contact the ADA coordinator.Your help is greatly appreciated.
